Visual Designer

Carolyn Cuykendall

I work primarily on marketing and internal communications. My favorite part of work is the breadth of projects and learning opportunities available. Outside of work I like to go on road trips.

Visual Designer

Alex Capasso

My favorite projects speak to my roots in print, but no matter the form, design is at its best when it’s both functional and pleasing to interact with. I enjoy drinking coffee, and the deafening sound of my Marshall JMP.

Product Designer

Donna Chan

I'm all about empathy, humor, and chocolate cake. My curiosity, quirks, and diverse background are not only embraced but harnessed here.

Web Developer

Alex Emslie

I love learning new coding techniques and web frameworks to bring designers' creations to life. The SF office is awesome because it allows me easy access to cocktails and ramen.


Joe Mayo

My work benefits from our office’s incredible natural light. Time spent on film sets and in television studios has given me a narrative sensibility that informs my efforts to promote and document AppDirect.

I believe the best design is solving real problems for real people. I’m passionate about constantly learning new things to help inform what I do. I like to dabble in programming and the occasional illustration.

Whether coding complicated layouts or connecting a dozen moving pieces to create an application feature, I am most happy solving problems with code.

Ian Mintz

I once wrote poems,

but I now draw and design.

It is my calling.
