Cody Cai (BA ‘17) has been named one of Adobe’s 2020 UX Designers to Watch as part of World Interaction Design Day. Adobe chose ten designers from an international pool, and Cai was named second on the list. Adobe made their choices based on the designers’ portfolios, experience, how well they promoted culture, how well they promoted sustainability, and how well they challenged the limitations of the design profession even so early on in their careers.
After graduating from Stamps, Cai began his career at IBM. He is now a UX Designer at Twitch, where he crafts interactive experiences. He believes “that sound, music, and language are powerful, universal tools of communication that shape realities, guide emotions, and warp perceptions.” In addition to his career, Cai co-curated an exhibition of jazz posters by Miklaus Troxler and created his own pictorial language, Sonoglyphs, which started as his Stamps senior project.
