Today’s guest speaker Joshua Hester (MFAD 08) is a senior user experience designer at Intersection, a company specializing in technology for urban spaces. He currently works on the transit product team, where he leads UI/UX design on their wayfinding kiosks for the MTA in New York and the VTA in California, among other transit agencies.

Prior to that project, he collaborated with Camille McMorrow (MFAD 12) on an interactive menu platform for honeygrow, a fast casual restaurant chain, where they brought a more direct and delightful ordering experience to the customer. Before that, he was a key designer in an interactive museum experience for the Edward M. Kennedy Institute, where students and adults can learn about the inner workings of the US Senate through exhibitions and collaborative games. Hester accepted an award for his team’s work when Intersection won Best in Category in Connecting at the IxDA ’16 Interaction Awards in Helsinki.
