Beyond Screens: Design Careers of the Future
Chelsea Klukas, Product Design Manager at Facebook

Over the past few decades, the definition of a designer has rapidly evolved alongside technology.

Chelsea Klukas is a product design manager at Facebook and an interdisciplinary technology-focused artist. In addition to building great products, she is passionate about building design culture in data-driven environments and driving processes to innovate at scale.

Klukas is also the co-founder of MakeFashion, a wearable technology startup that brings high tech and high fashion to the runway.

Before Amazon she was the creative director of BeauCoo, a social shopping startup that helped women find clothes that fit, and design lead at Poynt, a cross-platform location-based app with 20M users that pioneered augmented reality features in the early days of iOS.…
