AMA: Aarron Walter, Started UX at MailChimp, Author of Designing for Emotion, VP of Design Education at InVision
almost 7 years ago from Aarron Walter, VP of Design Education at InVision
I'm Aarron Walter, VP of Design Education at InVision.
In 2008 I joined MailChimp as the first design hire. I founded the the UX team there and revamped the product many times. We grew from a few thousand customers when I started to more than 10 million when I left in February of this year. Along the way I wrote a little book called Designing for Emotion from A Book Apart exploring the connections between design and psychology in product design.
I recently joined InVision to share design best practices with our customers both big and small. I've been a long time customer before joining the team and have been fascinated to see how the product has been changing the way designers work.
I love to talk about building design teams, hiring the right people, doing design research, and designing with personality.
I'm happy to answer questions about any of these topics and more from 10:30AM-5PM ET Wed April 20.
