Justin Dauer is the vice president of human-centered design and development at bswift, a software as a service company in the healthcare industry. Justin attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where he received a B.F.A in visual communications. After years of being unhappy in the workplace, Justin decided to quit his job and search for a company that truly understood the importance of good workplace culture. Eventually he found a job working for a Swedish company where they embraced the idea of human centered design. That’s a type of design thinking in which workers are viewed as more than resources, but rather as humans worthy of respect and decency. Now he was finally able to put into words the flaws of so many company cultures. Now, he’s written two books about human-centered design. His most recent book, Creative Culture: Human-Centered Interaction, Design and Inspiration was released in June 2020.
