Kristy Tillman

Leader of global workplace design at Slack


A former designer at IDEO, Tillman is known for looking for ways to push design and integrate best design practices across digital and print.

I see more large businesses being led and founded by designers. Creative leadership will be essential in helping tomorrow’s most innovative companies traverse the ambiguity necessary to realize the possibilities created by the rapid pace of technological advancement.
