Designing and building products that have meaningful impact on people’s lives is an exorbitant amount work. Yet products that do this successfully are the ones we return to again and again. Despite their complexity, these products make interactions with others and environments seem effortless, desirable, and even addictive. How do we as designers do the hard work of creating products that are useful and relevant? In this talk, Erin will share how her experience as a men’s crew coach has helped her understand complex systems, and how that experience still influences her daily design process at Twitter.

Erin Moore is a Senior Product Designer at Twitter and develops education and outreach programs that encourage local high school students, young girls, and inner city youth to pursue careers in design and tech. Before Twitter, Erin designed banking services for rural communities in Pakistan, studied fine art and creative writing, and spent an exorbitant amount of time playing and coaching collegiate athletics. She holds an MFA in Interaction Design from the School of Visual Arts in New York and lives in San Francisco.
