When you ask Kristy Tillman about design, she doesn’t just talk about designing for a screen. She touches on space, rooms, fliers, products, both physical and digital. Her fluid, all-encompassing concept of design might be new to our CodeNewbie community, but it’s crucial for her role as Design Director for the Society of Grownups.
