On the eve of Trump’s impeachment trial and Australia’s raging wildfires, the 2020 Edition of the Worldweb Forum was about learning how leadership is in need of radical change. With this in mind, I was brought in to Chair the Human-Centered Design Track sponsored by Zurich Insurance. This involved curating the speakers, organizing the full two-day agenda as well a being able to balance the desires of Zurich Insurance and the needs of the Worldweb Forum.

The thread I wove through the speakers I invited in the Human-Centered Design Track, was their ability to question the status quo. Speakers like CEO Billie Whitehouse of Wearable X and architect Roxy Rahel Guellmeister at Foster + Partners. It’s their ability to ask a question, even if there is no apparent answer in sight, that empowers them to move the needle a little further.

I’ve had a fascination with the face as an interface ever since I could use my eye-brows to tweet or control a servo. When Spark AR  launched I knew I had to try it out and see how quickly I could develop and publish a filter. Taking into account the pervasiveness of  people sharing their identity via smartphones I wanted to also empower people to share without revealing everything.

Censor Bar is a simple filter that uses the old-school technique of covering one’s eyes with an opaque black bar. Incredibly enough, it was excepted, published and has been used by a good number of folks.  Try it out for yourself.

Stuffle was a mobile marketplace platform that enabled people to buy and sell their personal items; the platform can be best summed as a mobile-first fleamarket. As the founding design director, Jeremy developed the visual language and overall branding as well as the user-experience, user-interface and interaction design.

Stuffle would go on to receive accolades from across several many organizations including: Apple “Best Apps Germany”,  Lovie Award, “Mobile Innovation”, Lead Award  “Webservice of the Year”, and IPDC: Best German iPhone App. After acquiring over a million downloads and two seven-figure funding rounds, Stuffle was acquired by Immobilien Scout in 2014.
