Crossroads: Creative Leadership Workshop - Get Your Passes Close

Angela Guzman

Co-Creator of The Emoji


San Francisco, USA

For over a decade, I have influenced the way we communicate, share, and interact with our environment through leadership and co-creation within the design teams at Google, Airbnb, and Apple. Each company offered me key opportunities to learn and grow while being fearless and forward-thinking. This talk focuses on my approach to my career and the takeaways from my time in Silicon Valley.

Angela is a designer and entrepreneur based out of Silicon Valley. Over the last decade, she has worked for Google, Airbnb, and Apple where she has managed, led, and directly contributed to design teams that focus on user experience, interaction, and visual design. Today, she is the co-founder and CEO of Tijiko, her startup. When not designing, Angela loves to write about design matters, share her experience in the industry as a guest lecturer, and mentor budding designers.
