I'm Scott Hurff, a product guy and author.

I wrote Designing Products People Love, published through O'Reilly, in 2016, and I love teaching digital designers the latest tools and techniques at Designers.how.

I'm currently wearing a few hats — advising JadeTrack and Casa, and working as an interim Director of Product Design at Philosophie in Santa Monica.

Prior to that, I joined Tinder after they acquired Tappy, a startup backed by Kleiner Perkins where I was on the founding team and served as Head of Product.

At Tinder, I was the Product Manager and Lead Designer on products like Super Like, Social, Messaging, and more.

The Tinder acquisition capped a five-year-run at venture-backed startups with the same team in spaces like messaging, photo sharing, video-on-demand, e-commerce, and much more. One of these startups, Chill, had ~30 million users at its peak.

I'm on Twitter and email.
