Mike Griffin

I'm a user experience designer, and I love making products people love. Most of my work is in the fuzzy front end of new product development. I thrive when I'm creating structure from the ambiguity that defines early phase research. Success takes process, grit, improvisation and lots of talented people working together to pull it off. I love the process, the collaboration, and the payoff—that moment when somebody sits down with the prototype we built to get something done and just beams with joy.

I've worked on a range of interesting products at SRI, the Institute for Research on Learning, WestEd and McDonald's Corporation. These days I lead a user experience team at Ricoh Innovations, where we work with technologists and business development experts to launch new businesses.
