On April 14th I’ll be starting my new gig as Principal Designer at LinkedIn. I’ve been a huge fan of LinkedIn for years. The potential seems enormous and I think it will be challenging and fun.
LinkedIn has undergone some major user interface changes recently. With the pending arrival of OpenSocial integration and an ever-growing feature list, LinkedIn is facing a challenge of maintaining usability while providing access to more and more information.
It’s the weekend, and I haven’t yet been able to reach anyone for comment, but presumably he’ll be working closely with Steve Ganz, Principal Web Developer at LinkedIn, who spearheaded the recent redesign.
UPDATE (Sunday 9:30 pm): LinkedIn spokesperson Kay Luo confirmed that Kevin is joining the LinkedIn team and that Steve Ganz will be continuing in his role as well.
