Welcome

Hi there!

I’m Jensen Harris, design and user experience guy, software lover, device geek, writer, coder, musician, hacker, father.

I have led large teams through some of the most bold and innovative user interface redesigns in the world, including Windows 8 and 8.1, the Ribbon in Microsoft Office, and creating the now-standard e-mail user interface in Microsoft Outlook.

I love everything about the creative process of designing beautiful, useful, and forward-thinking products. Design together with real-world engineering is the ultimate marriage of science and the humanities. Nothing is more rewarding to me than creating something simple, lovable, and cohesive out of a product that is complex, difficult, and fragmented.

As a developer, I have experience creating apps for Windows, Windows Phone, Android, and iOS.

Here are some recent videos, talks, and writing I have been involved in.

My résumé lists my recent experiences if you would like to take a look.
