Pushing the Boundaries of Design at Facebook & Beyond

Michelle Morrison wants to push the boundaries of how people see design.

But how, you ask?

Although she is a Design Program Manager at Facebook, Michelle’s real passion lies in building a community called Designers + Geeks. Designers + Geeks is for people interested in design, art, and technology. They host monthly talks, covering everything from “morally manipulating” your users with Nir Eyal’s help, to how design impacts the cannabis industry. Michelle’s goal is to create content and inspire conversation about how design is constantly evolving in today’s world.

A note from our founder

Amazing about.me community,

The last few weeks have unlocked a wide range of emotions for people all around the U.S., the world and for many of us at about.me. I’m sure this issue is personal for many people in the about.me community. I know for our about.me team, this is no exception.

We wholeheartedly support the importance of a sensible, well-vetted and understood immigration policy. We also believe in the equality of every individual, and deeply value every member of our about.me community worldwide. Respect and inclusion have always been foundational to about.me. As everyone who is a team member or has previously worked at about.me knows, we are a company built on diversity. Our team is diverse, not just in professional backgrounds, but demonstrably in gender, nationalities, religions and socio-economic upbringings. Our diversity is our strength. It has fostered an environment that embraces and believes in diversity of ideas and respects different opinions. It is core for us at about.me.

Taking ownership of treating people with care and love can be a profound act. In addition to a personal contribution to the ACLU, we’ve updated our social media icons, replacing it with a colorful heart. This change symbolizes our commitment to use our platform to deliver a message of inclusiveness and respect that empowers our community to authentically present themselves to people interested in learning more about them.

I hope you’ll embrace this design and the symbolism it represents. We are so incredibly thankful for and inspired by the breadth of members of our community – a heartfelt thank you.

Co-Founder & CEO, about.me
