Joshua Mauldin is a design leader and visual artist who got his start creating websites for bands. Since then, he’s designed 5-star mobile apps and built stellar high-performing design teams. These days he designs, writes, speaks on topics like getting into product design, integrating mindfulness into the creative process, cross-team collaboration, and embracing healthy conflict at work. He is currently writing a book on that last one. When designing digital products, he approaches whatever he’s working on with as much curiosity, humanity, and courage he can muster. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife Alison (an incredible partner), his dog Charlie (a very good boy), and cat Frankie (she kind of tolerates him).
