Meet Rich Szeto, our new Senior User Experience Designer. He brings his artistic eye and fresh ideas to Socialtext, and we’re very excited to have him here.
What were you doing prior to joining Socialtext?
I was a Senior Designer at Rovi and worked on their site to create a more user-friendly experience.
What will you be doing for Socialtext?
I’ll be working with our Art Director to make Socialtext better for our users. I want the Socialtext experience to be cohesive, intuitive, and engaging, so I’ll be enhancing our designs to improve that experience.
What are 3 words you would use to describe yourself?
Creative, enthusiastic, and humble.
What do you do in your free time?
I try to balance my creative pursuits with more active ones. My hobbies include animation, game development, and creative writing, but you’re also likely to find me shooting hoops.
What gets you fired up about working for Socialtext?
Culturally, Socialtext is a great fit for me. The people are friendly, dedicated, and passionate about the product. I’m excited to add my ideas to the team, have a positive impact on the user experience, and refine my craft.
What are you most looking forward to at Socialtext?
I’m really looking forward to working with Mark Edelsberg, Socialtext’s Art Director. Mark has designed products I’ve worked with previously, so I welcome this opportunity to collaborate with him.
