Learning Data-Informed Design
Randy J. Hunt, Creative Director, Etsy
In 2010, Randy joined Etsy's very small design team, which lead to a four-and-a-half year journey of learning to work with analysts, data engineers, user researchers, and market research to inform design decisions, while integrating product design into the development process. Randy will share highlights, lowlights, and lessons learned.
Randy Hunt is Creative Director at Etsy, where he leads a team of designers creating the end-to-end experience, both online and off. Hunt feels strongly that designers must be able to build what they design, a perspective that fits naturally with Etsy’s culture of making and the love of craftsmanship. Hunt co-founded Supermarket, a curated design marketplace. Previously, he founded Citizen Scholar Inc. and worked at Milton Glaser Inc. and Number 17. He writes and lectures about design and has been a visiting designer and critic at many colleges and universities. His first book, Product Design for the Web, introduces principles for building and releasing web products.
