Patrick Hofmann @phofmann

We're huge fans of Patrick and you'll quickly see why. If you have heard Patrick present, or if you joined us for last Fall's extremely popular webinar on The Essentials of Visual Design, you know he has a passion for removing words from interfaces and replacing them with pictures.

For over 13 years, Patrick Hofmann has worked as a technical illustrator, visual interaction designer and usability consultant. He specializes in visualizing information - to make products easier to use, and to satisfy global audiences. As well as building interactive prototypes, and coordinating and conducting usability tests, Patrick helps organizations practice appropriate user-centered design and evaluation methodologies, and has helped a variety of worldwide clients across a spectrum of industries. An expert in visual instruction and wordless communication, he currently works for Google in Australia.
