Des Traynor at Intercom recently did a podcast with Margaret Gould Stewart, directory of product design at Facebook. It’s an interesting podcast and worth a listen to.
Margaret Gould Stewart has more than 15 years experience leading design, research and UX teams at some of the world’s most influential tech brands.
Currently Director of Product Design at Facebook, Margaret oversees UX for all of the company’s ad products (mobile alone is a $2.9-billion business). She previously held senior user experience roles at YouTube and Google, and you might have caught her giving a Ted Talk or two.
I caught up with Margaret to talk about the pressure of designing products for more than one-sixth of the world’s population, where design concepts differ and overlap in consumer and business products, and how to maintain a high bar for quality while scaling a creative team.
