Jeffrey Veen is a design partner at True Ventures, where he helps companies such as about.me, Medium, and Auttomatic creating better products. He has co-founded Typekit and Adaptive Path, which were acquired later by Adobe and Google. There, he redesigned Google Analytics, led the Google apps UX team, and was Vice President at Adobe's Design department. As if it's not enough, he was part of the founding web team at Wired Magazine back in the days, too. Pretty impressive, eh?
