You may not have heard much about Eric Bailey, but there's a pretty good chance that you've encountered his work out in the world. As the VP of experience design at Zillow, he brings over 20 years of strategic thinking, imagining, and making to revolutionize the process of buying or selling your home.
Our conversation began with Eric discussing how he builds culture and maintains joy on his team, and he spoke broadly about what he calls "the limitless possibilities of UX design." He also talked about growing up in Ohio, being around for the early days of the Organization of Black Designers and Project Osmosis (which he co-founded), building his brand Properganda, and he gave the secret for how he's maintained his authenticity throughout this career. According to Eric, anyone can look within and fulfill their potential through design -- and he's absolutely right!
