Hero Product Story: Building the delightful experience of Medium

Dustin, who uses the word ''craft'' almost as often as the word ''empathy,'' works like a therapist of design, parsing users’ needs in order to create, iteration by iteration, a collaborative, distraction-free publishing platform. A spirit of elegant restraint permeates Senos’ design philosophy, and he notes that “learning to say no” was a major design and life lesson.

Dustin will share how Medium came to be the content platform that is today. Beautifully simple both in its embrace of the content as well as in its highly contextual editing interface that was crafted with great attention to being as easy to use as it is unobtrusive.

Dustin observes: ''I do everything better when I don’t try to do everything.'' Like designer, like product.
