Danielle Malik
Owner, Design Equation


Bringing over a decade of experience to bear on the next generation of designers, Danielle Malik founded a design studio called Design Equation, which pairs junior designers with nonprofits and early-stage startups in a mentored environment. She is, as they say, living the dream. Prior to founding this company, she has flexed her design & leadership muscles in a variety of roles: Instructor at General Assembly, Product Design Manager at Facebook, Principal of UX at Hot Studio, and many other engagements great and small. She has been chronically active in the UX community, planning and organizing many professional events and conferences, and now sits on the Board of Directors for IxDA, an organization with a global membership of over 70,000. She also founded the IxDA San Francisco chapter in 2008, which today reaches more than 4000 members.
