Josh Rubin Biography

"There are no new ideas, just great executions." This has been Josh Rubin's mantra for over a decade – a realization that actually opened the door to both creativity and productivity. As an interaction designer Rubin is always looking for both inspiration and an understanding of the way people do things. His presentations motivate "creatives" and businesspeople alike by demystifying the relationship between these seemingly foreign but totally interdependent roles. His lessons and stories are rooted in his ability to bridge design and technology, but are relevant to all disciplines.

In 2003 he decided to start a catalog of what he found and launched Cool Hunting (, named after a phrase synonymous with finding inspiration. This is more than just trends; it is about curated observations. The Cool Hunting global team of editors and contributors sift through innovations in design, technology, art, and culture to create their award-winning online publication, consisting of cutting-edge daily insights and weekly mini-documentaries.

In addition to editing Cool Hunting, Rubin consults for select clients on strategy, content, and design for digital products, services, and publications. His clients have included Apple, Adobe, Vodafone, Nike, Google, and MTV, among many others. Rubin also helped to found the digital consultancy Bond Art + Science, was a Lead User Interface Designer at Motorola, a Design Director at Razorfish, in charge of product development at Upoc Networks, and an intern at IDEO. He has a BA in Communications and Cognitive Science from Hampshire College and a Master's in Interactive Telecommunications from NYU.

Rubin has been in such high demand as a speaker and consultant because of his ability to help people understand what makes an idea great, how to execute that great idea, and how to drive successful innovation. It is all about how to make it happen and turning vision into reality.
