Hi, I’m Peter Cho, a design leader and designer based in San Francisco. I’m the Head of Design at Pocket, where we’re working on improving a service beloved by millions of users. Prior to Pocket, I worked at Medium, where my focus was on creator tools, monetization, and content efforts, and on the Google Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) team as the head of user experience for Project Ara. From 2009 to 2015, I was VP of Design at Inkling, directing the design of a new breed of digital publishing and content delivery tools for educational publishing.
I’ve worked as a design educator, teaching information design, typography, animation, and web media courses at UCLA, Art Center, and CalArts. I received an MFA from the UCLA Design | Media Arts department in 2005 and an MS from the MIT Media Laboratory in 1999.
