An Interview with Tim
  • Hey Tim, thanks so much for joining us on The Industry. Tell us a bit about yourself and the work you’re doing.
  • Hey Conor! I’m currently a 27-year-old guy living in San Francisco with his wonderful wife Gwen and our precious 6-month-old daughter Spence, working for a tiny company you might’ve heard of called Instagram where I’m responsible for mobile design for both Android and iOS. Before that I lived in Austin, TX working for Gowalla after moving from Belgium to the US once we got our visa.
  • What is your workspace like? Are there any design tools that you simply couldn’t live without?
  • My workspace right now consists out of a 15″ Retina MacBook Pro on an aluminum stand on the right (by day I use its screen for chat, Twitter, mail and previewing designs), right in front of me I have a 27″ Cinema Display (with Photoshop CS6 in the darkest mode), my iPhone is standing in an Elevation Dock with Skala running pretty much all day, a decent set of headphones (Sony MDR-7506) and Apple’s wireless keyboard and Magic Mouse.
