Computer hippies unite
I'm Lucas Smith, a designer and technologist (maybe a Design Technologist?) living in Decatur, GA with my wife and kids.
Previously I was a Senior Manager of Design Tools at Airbnb, Product Design Lead at Earnesti, Fellow at IDEO CoLab, and I participated in the Designer Fund Bridge program. Prior to all of that, I worked remotely from Atlanta for early-stage startups and agencies, founded my own design studio, and worked as a frontend engineerii.
Around the web
- Config talk loosely about Statecharts
- Episode of Design Details (boy do I ramble)
- Panel discussion on design systems at SF Design Week in 2018
- A pair of patents related to mobile location (spoiler alert, boring read)
- Earnest was acquired in 2017 by Navient (sad trombone)
- I have a degree in CS and 18 years of professional experience as a designer
