Christopher Taylor Edwards
Product Designer and Strategist, Lead, Thoughtworks

Christopher Edwards is a product designer and strategist with 20 years of experience in every aspect of design from editorial design and production management to advertising, exhibition design, and now screen-based experience design. Somewhere along the way has realized that the old question of whether designers should code is wrong. The question should be: how can designers work better with developers?

As a late-deafened queer cisgender man, Christopher is an advocate for inclusive design and has spoken at international conferences on how to shift our focus on accessibility to a user problem to be solved, not just a standard to be met. Christopher revels in design operations and what makes high-functioning teams function highly. Christopher recently moved back to Chicago after 29 years touring the rest of the U.S.
