Luke Wroblewski

Where do we start? It's no accident we asked Luke to share his thoughts on mobile design with you. We could tell you he is our go-to guy on forms and mobile design, but that would be a vast understatement. Luke is currently the CEO and Co-Founder of Input Factory Inc., an Internet start-up focused on creating big value from micro mobile interactions. Prior to this, Luke was the Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer of Bagcheck which was acquired by Twitter just nine months after being launched publicly.

Before he was founding start-up companies, Luke was an Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) at Benchmark Capital, the Chief Design Architect (VP) at Yahoo!, Lead User Interface Designer at eBay, and a Senior Interface Designer at NCSA: the birthplace of the first popular graphical Web browser, NCSA Mosaic.

Luke is the author of three popular Web design books (Mobile First, Web Form Design & Site-Seeing: A Visual Approach to Web Usability).

A frequent presenter at UIE events such as the UI Conference and UX Immersion, Luke receives rave reviews and is always one of the highest rated speakers.You can follow him on his site or at @LukeW
