Hi! My name is Dan Turner. I'm an interaction and product designer, a graduate of MIT and the UC Berkeley School of Information, and a strong advocate for the user and human-centered design. With a background in science and journalism, I've led teams that have built award-winning ideas and helped projects find the right direction and mission.
Currently I am Lead Product Designer at Open Garden, where we are working to help people share their connectivity and create "the internet of us".
You can read my published articles, browse my recent work, or see what people say about me. I also moderate the Ethics channel on the Designer Hangout Slack, help edit the Designer Hangout magazine, and was lead author of their Code of Conduct. This year I am a Community Guide for the OpenIDEO Amplify disability challenge.
I race bikes, mentor new bike racers, and mentor new designers; I love working with people who have backgrounds in diverse fields.
Think of me as a generalist with a lot of specialties.
Always glad to talk! Tell me what you're doing.
