Co.Design Is Running Excerpts from How They Got There

How They Got There on Co. Design

Fast Company’s design-focused imprint Co. Design is running three excerpts from my new book, “How They Got There: Interviews With Digital Designers About Their Careers” starting today.

The first interview is with infographics designer Nicholas Felton, who talks about “his first job rejection, his fling with Facebook, and the fraught future of data.” It’s a pretty extensive excerpt, but there is lots more in the book both from Felton and thirteen other notable designers, so get your copy today at

Update 3 May 2015: The second installment is live at Co. Design; this one is an excerpt of my interview with Evan Sharp, co-founder of Pinterest. Sharp talks about the challenges in managing design as the enormously popular site scaled up. Read it here.
