About Handsome

DesignCraft: Women + Design featured industry professionals' perspectives on how inclusivity and diversity foster creativity, and how women in our field are making an impact.

Handsome hosted  DesignCraft: Women + Design on June 6th in Seattle at The London Plane, featuring women design leaders from Facebook, Hulu, Google, Amazon, and more.

The evening was attended by over 50 women from Seattle’s design community, and featured two panel discussions moderated by our Director of Experience Design, Annette Neu. Central to the evening's discussions were topics like the differences between mentorship and sponsorship, and the importance of diversity and inclusivity in design, all told through the insights and personal journeys of each panelist.

Participants in DesignCraft: Women + Design included Senior Manager, Product Design at Hulu, Linda Sum; Head of UX/Design at Amazon, Reem Gamil; Senior UX Designer at HBO, Natalie Tobey-Breunig; UX Leader at Google, Nafisa Bhojawala; Sr Product Manager at Nordstrom, Karianna Johnson; Sr UX Designer at T-Mobile, Jaye Kovach; and Product Design Leader at Facebook, Michelle Kapnias.

Using DesignCraft as our advocacy platform, we are planning to host additional events across the country, covering topics like technology and innovation, human-centered marketing, and designing spaces--both physical and virtual--for human experience.
