Product Design Manager, Facebook



Jill’s a passionate believer in the transformative power of well-conceived and smartly designed digital experiences. She’s had the opportunity to work at the forefront of developing technologies, and collaborate with brands that make a big impact in the world — Nike, GE, Samsung and Virgin, to name a few.

As the Executive Director of Product Design at the Barbarian Group, Jill works with clients to develop long-term product experiences, and oversees the User Experience group. Previously she was an Executive Creative Director at R/GA, and a key player behind the design of the Nike+ platform, which was named “Campaign of the Decade” by the One Club and Adweek. In her role, she oversaw the evolution of the platform to include Nike+ Fuelband, Nike+ Basketball and Nike+ Training.

Jill is active member of the NY design community and enjoys teaching, public speaking, writing, and advising young designers and tech start-ups. She currently teaches in the Interaction Design MFA program at the School of Visual Arts, and is a contributing writer for PSFK. She frequently guest lectures at conferences and learning institutions like SxSW, AIGA/NY, IxDA, and General Assembly.

Jillʼs work has garnered dozens of industry awards, including the Cannes Titanium Lion, Cannes Cyber Lion, Clio Interactive Grand, and D&AD Black Pencil. Her work also has been featured in I.D. magazine’s Annual Design Review, Contagious magazine, Communication Arts, Digiday and FWA’s mobile site of the Day. She has juried several competitions including the One Show, Communication Arts and the Clios.
