About Me

Hi, I’m Faruk Ateş, a product designer who likes to create useful things. Like Modernizr, an Open Source library that helps you take advantage of cutting-edge features in HTML5 and CSS3 today, or Presentate, a presentation tool that is content-oriented and helps you become a better presenter.

I’m currently a Product Designer at Quantifind, a company where data science meets human pattern-matching and curiosity. We provide Explanatory Analytics to companies that help them understand the interests and desires of their customers. Prior to Quantifind I was Design Director on one of the world’s largest government software projects, was Product Designer on a startup acquired by Google, advocated for web standards and accessibility with the Web Standards Project, and spearheaded the team at Apple bringing their famous Online Store into the modern age of web design and development.

I’ve written for many publications both online and in print, and speak all around the world about web design, development, standards and best practices.
