Irene Au – Design is as important as technology

Irene Au, operating partner at Khosla Ventures, led the user experience team at Google for six years and the user experience and design team at Yahoo! for eight years. In this talk she looks at how the different views of design at Google and Yahoo affected the companies.

What was it about Yahoo’s organisational structure and the way the company viewed design that made it end up as a house of brands? How long did it take Google to come up with it’s iconically simple, yet beautiful landing page? And can you guess the state of a company by looking at its design?
