Dean Oest is a designer, thinker, and teacher who wants to make people happy and confident online.
“Interacting with our environment is something that at a fundamental level, everyone understands. Balls roll downhill, apples fall from trees, and the knob in the sink turns on the water. As I heard it said in a podcast once, ‘you never have to worry that gravity.js has a bug.’ But in the digital world the experience can get murky or behave in odd ways.”
As a designer (and sometimes frontend engineer), Dean’s goal is to make the online world as approachable, as understandable, and as delightful as the real world.
