Margaret Gould Stewart

My name is Margaret. I'm a designer, a manager of creative teams, a wife and a mom. I am passionate about how design can improve people's lives, and the responsibility designers have to use their talents in that pursuit. I've led design teams for some truly world changing platforms like Google Search, YouTube, and currently, Facebook. I feel pretty lucky to do this for a living.
