Hi, I'm Micah Fenner

I'm a Product Designer at Asana. I've also worked as a designer at Apple, and studied Cognitive Science and Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon. I create experiences at the intersection of human behavior, technology, and design. 🏄🏻 🏃🏻 ✈️.

Principles

  1. Everyone should be able to enjoy great design. And I mean everyone. The young, the elderly, those with accessibility needs, and yes, even enterprise users.
  2. Fitts's Law is king. More broadly, we should never ignore the research-backed fundamentals that form the foundation of good UX practices.
  3. Physical > digital. We should be creating digital experiences that add meaning to our physical lives and make them easier, not get in the way.
  4. Attention is a valuable resource. Technology should only demand our attention when absolutely necessary.
  5. Design work is never complete and we're never done learning. We should always be looking for the next challenge. As Steve Jobs said, "Stay hungry, stay foolish."
