Hey, check out the Design Notes podcast where I was a guest. We talk about apps, aesthetics, and challenging industry norms. Lately I’ve been focusing on web3 concepts such as digital ID and governance at ConsenSys.

I also made these two side projects; Flashback Sticker Attack! is a fun animated sticker pack for iMessage, and Motoveli Motorcycle Magazine is an independent publication for riders and creators.


ABOUT RYAN SNELSON

I’m a designer in-and-out of tech, 2x Co-founder, and a product thinker slash entrepreneur. Since Web1 I’ve worked for companies such as Google, Citymaps, MySpace, and a few early-stage startups that tried really hard—mostly in native mobile and social. Once I worked on an augmented reality motorcycle helmet. Sometimes I teach UX.

I swear by hype cycles and lo-res gifs. I’ve learned that systems are designed to enable or prevent people from doing things, and that people will engage with experiences and content they value. I believe that good design is appropriate and usable, does what it should, and feels good.
