Jeremy Tai Abbett is an American designer and maker of delightful interactions between people, machines and culture. Born in Vietnam and raised in Minnesota he now lives and works in the northern city of Hamburg, Germany.

Jeremy’s interest in design was piqued at an early age by his parents (a landscape architect and psychologist) while his curiosity for world-building was a result of many hours playing the original 80’s classic role-playing game Dungeons and Dragons as well as an obsession with skateboarding. Highlights to the later include: skating in a demo with Tony Hawk, laying down silky smooth smith grinds and being in Thrasher Magazine.

In 1996, Jeremy founded design agency Fork Unstable Media where he was the creative partner developing work for companies such as Nivea, Lufthansa, Daimler, and Wired Magazine to name just a few. His work has been internationally recognized and won numerous awards including: New York Festivals, the One Show, Clio Awards and the Lovie Awards. Jeremy also had three projects that were acquired by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art granting him a ‘Lifetime Artist’ membership.

Jeremy also spent four years as Google’s Creative Evangelist, co-founded multidisciplinary studio Truth Dare Double Dare, was a founding post-graduate student at Interaction Design Institute Ivrea, and was voted as one of the 100 most influential people in the European digital industry. He currently resides in Hamburg, Germany with his family and a pair of retired Persian cats.
