Tonight I’m working the BuzzFeed Team page for designers and analysts to chat to for the project.
Some amazing people at that publication at the moment including:
- Greg Leuch - Senior Designer at BuzzFeed: Radically well-branded across seemingly infinite platforms (and here and here and here) as @gleuch, perhaps best-known for Shaved Bieber but an all-round viral heavyweight.
- Mark Shuster - Senior Designer: Seems, based on his homepage to be the voice of busy elegance on the BuzzFeed design team. I knew I was a fan when browsing the tags on his GitHub - open frameworks, tangible interaction, interactive art, research and activism to name a few. Kindred spirits? I think so.
- Rachel Edelman - Designer: Self described as “interested in solving visual problems, and solving problems visually,” her website/portfolio is full of sparse, simple projects - frighteningly well-suited to my tastes. (my girlfriend’s looking over my shoulder drooling at her Saveur iPad magazine designs.
- Arun Mikkilineni is a Traffic and Data Analyst at Buzzfeed. He and people of similar job descriptions are the key tree up which to bark for this paper to end up #winning.
Let’s see if any of them have time to get back to me.
