I'm Brad Bouse. I move pixels around in Seattle, WA.
Who is this guy?
I like to build neat things.
I am the co-founder of Lightboard. We believe everyone deserves great design.
Personally, I'm interested in creative code, and gave a talk about it at JSConf in Berlin, Cascadia.JS in Vancouver, B.C., and Amazon's WebDevCon in Seattle. With Amaranth Borsuk, we made Between Page and Screen (Siglio Press, 2012) and Whispering Galleries (Site Projects, 2014).
Lightboard is a new kind of design agency, making great design available to every sales and marketing team.
We've built an incredible team of designers and account managers to deliver every day design to companies across the country, including 3M, Autodesk, Trello, and Vox.
I named, designed, and marketed the program, leading it to a successful product launch. I recruited the founding instructors, and interviewed and assembled the first bootcamp.
Yammer is the social network for business. The company was spun out of Geni, and I designed and developed the Yammer desktop application in Adobe AIR, which became the most popular way our users interacted with Yammer.
Yammer won TechCrunch's annual startup competition,TC50, in 2008, and was acquired by Microsoft for $1.2B in 2012.
Geni is a collaborative family tree. Over 8 million users have added 150 million profiles, and 65 million of them are linked in a "world family tree."
I designed and developed the family tree interface, which handles millions of interactions each day.
Time magazine named Geni one of the top sites of 2008. Geni was acquired by MyHeritage in 2012.
