Andy Davies

Andy is a designer at Mule, and "lead worrier" at Sweaty Robots, a side project that he’s still not sure what it actually is.Real Robots Don’t Sweat

Design is an industry riddled with fear and anxiety, whether it’s of clients, critique, or our own unattainable standards. We do weird things under the influence of all that pressure, and this talk is a chance to set aside the stigma and be honest about the pressures we feel in a perfectionist field.

Zethus Suen

Designer by day, failed superhero by night, Zethus works on delivering enterprise applications at Netflix.

He cares about interfaces, interactions, and bridging the gap between designers and engineers. Zethus currently resides in San Francisco, where he enjoys biking, bouldering, and spending $5 on coffee, but not $0.99 for an app.

Designing with Data (or How to Not Cry Designing for Edge Cases)

Have you ever finished a design comp just to realize you forgot certain text should be truncated? Non-ideal image dimensions? Missing retina assets? This talk will cover why and how to design against pesky edge cases by leveraging existing or mock data.
