We’re happy to welcome Ali Felski to the Development Seed family! Ali has led design teams at Sunlight Foundation and iStrategyLabs. She is going to help us improve design practices across Development Seed, including integrating UX and usability research into the fabric of each project.
A native Yooper, Ali is more recently a proud Washingtonian, appreciating the weather down here a little more. Over the past decade, Ali has brought good design to the far corners of Washington DC. She improved usability at the CIA, built the Sunlight Foundation’s design team from the ground up, and systematized usability research at iStrategyLabs, where she served as user experience director. Not to mention winning Best Personal Portfolio at SXSW. And while her dream job would be as a taste-tester of artisanal chocolate, she’s convinced us that transforming design through UX thinking is a close second.
