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. I was brought in to Chair the Human-Centered Design Track sponsored by Zurich Insurance. This involved balancing the desires of Zurich Insurance and the needs of the Worldweb Forum; curating the speakers, organizing the full two-day agenda as well as designing collateral.

The thread I wove through the speakers I invited to 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 questions, 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 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. It was accepted, 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.
