Kevin Lynagh

I’m a designer specializing in user interfaces for complex systems.

Keming Labs is my consulting firm, with clients in renewable energy, genomics, and weather forecasting.

My recent focus is making abstract concepts tangible, so they can be better explored. For example, direct manipulation of layout constraints in a graphic design tool and interactive visualization of state machines.

To get a sense of my design process, see my talk on choosing features. You may also be interested in my 20+ other talks on data visualization, functional programming, and the time I made a cell phone.

I love to hear from people, especially if I can help with their projects or careers! Please email me if you:

If you think it’s weird to email people you don’t know — it’s not! Some of the best relationships I have, business and personal, started when one of us reached out to the other for help on a project, thoughts on a problem, or just coffee! So, if you’re considering emailing, please do it!

For best results, see Patrick McKenzie’s tips for emailing busy people.
