If the internet is more awesome than it was in 1995, Karen McGrane would like to claim a very tiny piece of the credit. For more than 15 years Karen has helped create more usable digital products through the power of user experience design and content strategy. Today, as managing partner at Bond Art + Science, she develops Web strategies and interaction designs for publishers, financial services firms, and healthcare companies.
Prior to starting Bond, Karen built the user-centered design practice at Razorfish in her role as VP and national lead for user experience. Karen is also on the faculty of the MFA in interaction design program at SVA in New York, where she teaches design management, which aims to teach students how to run successful projects, teams, and businesses.
