Event description: 

Making large-scale changes to a well established product is fraught with challenges. Learn how, in designing Salesforce 1, we overcame the obstacles

  • by leveraging mobile as a way to control scope and tame anxiety
  • by designing systems instead of features to ensure scalability and consistency across a massive product


Craig Villamor is a Principal Design Architect at Salesforce.com where he spent the last year leading the design of Salesforce's flagship mobile app, Salesforce1. Craig also led the v1 design of Salesforce's Do.com—may it rest in peace—and the Chatter mobile app. During his more than 15-year tenure in user experience, Craig has been a User Researcher at eBay, a Director of UX at Monster.com, and cofounder of a small startup. When not moving pixels around, Craig enjoys spending time with his family and mountain biking.

Chris Auyeung is a Senior Product Designer at Salesforce, where he spends his time immersed in systems and processes. He's spent the past year as a designer on Salesforce1 and was a key contributor to the Salesforce1 Style Guide, in which he distilled and documented the visual components and patterns used to build the product. If he's not working on beautifying the enterprise, he's usually busy playing nerdy European board games or watching American Idol alone—since he is the only person alive who still cares.
