Josh Higgins

Josh Higgins is the executive creative director for virtual and augmented reality products and hardware at Facebook. Before Facebook he was design director for President Obama’s 2012 campaign. If that seems like a major career leap, from presidential politics to social media giant, just you wait. Before he got into design, Josh was a musician. For over a decade he performed and recorded with the band Fluff. In other words, Josh is a rennaissance man, and he’s also a really interesting guy.

Josh Higgins talks about how to design software products that become popular with users. “The answer is you never know. You really don’t know until you do a lot of research. And ultimately you go with your gut.”
