Justin Dauer is the vice president of human-centered design and development at bswift, a software as a service company in the healthcare industry. After years of being unhappy in his work, Justin quit his job and searched for a company with truly 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 just resources, but rather as human beings worthy of respect and decency. Justin’s most recent book, Creative Culture: Human-Centered Interaction, Design and Inspiration was released in June 2020. He attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where he received a B.F.A in visual communications.
