Krys Blackwood



Krys Blackwood fights for the user. She designs the ways that human beings interact with software and hardware so that they have good experiences—rather than the frustration many of us feel when technology doesn’t want to cooperate. She has designed interfaces of many kinds for over twenty years, often with Silicon Valley startups and Fortune 500 companies.
