Hi, I’m Peter Cho, a designer, design leader, and sometime creative coder based in San Francisco. I’m a design lead and manager at Medium. Previously, I worked for the Google ATAP (Advanced Technologies and Projects) team as the head of user experience on Project Ara, and was VP of Design at Inkling from 2009 to 2015, directing the design of a new breed of digital publishing and content delivery tools for educational publishers and internal publishing teams at corporations.
I’ve also 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.
