Jon Kolko Biography

The Jon Kolko keynotes examine how a company's product design can be beneficial even if it is never put into production. Kolko believes it is designs and concepts that create an organization's culture and open opportunities for greater successes.

Currently, Kolko is the director and founder at the Austin Center for Design, a non-profit organization that aims to transform and deal with societal issues by using design. Prior to this position, Kolko was an Executive Director at Thinktiv and a Principal Designer at Frog Design. In terms of his education, Kolko earned both his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Design and his Master's in Human Computer Reaction from the Carnegie Mellon University. With knowledge in consumer electronics and customer-relationship management, Kolko is a sought-after designer working for clients like Ford and AT&T among other Fortune 500 companies.

As an author, Kolka is most recognized for his publication 'Thoughts on Interaction Design.' His work was also featured in the 'European Academy of Design Proceedings' and the 'IDSA.' Looking at design projects as political tools and culture creators, the Jon Kolko keynotes are insightful discussions that value process over profit.
