Josh Clark is a designer specializing in multi-device design, strategy, and user experience. He’s author of “Tapworthy: Designing Great iPhone Apps” (O’Reilly, 2010) and the forthcoming “Designing for Touch” (A Book Apart, 2014). Josh’s agency Global Moxie offers design services, strategic consulting, and training to help creative organizations build tapworthy apps and responsive websites. His clients include AOL, Time Inc, eBay, and many others, including Internet of Things healthcare startup Asthmapolis.

Before the internet swallowed him up, Josh was a producer of national PBS programs at Boston’s WGBH. He shared his three words of Russian with Mikhail Gorbachev, strolled the ranch with Nancy Reagan, hobnobbed with Rockefellers, and wrote trivia questions for a primetime game show. In 1996, he created the uberpopular “Couch-to-5K” (C25K) running program, which has helped millions of skeptical would-be exercisers take up jogging. (His motto is the same for fitness as it is for software user experience: no pain, no pain.)
