Interview: Michael Heilemann

Michael Heilemann is the Director of Interface at Squarespace. What does that mean? We dig in to find out, but beyond that Michael is a avid film enthusiast, video game player, master of all things Star Wars, and my friend. His website, Kitbashed is an ongoing literary and visual pursuit to document and explain the inspirations and production of the George Lucas’ space saga. This episode, in a nice transition from video games back to a more web and interface design theme, I get to talk to him about being a design leader in an organization, and his winding career path to get to that point. Check out Kitbashed, and watch Star Wars like you’ve never seen it before.
