UX Leadership, design, and strategy.

I’m Diane Cronenwett, an experienced design lead with a specialty in crafting holistic design strategy for Silicon Valley based Fortune 500 tech companies. I hold two Master’s degrees. My UX portfolio contains work from past companies, UX courses and UX writing (my opinion only).

I’m currently working at Meta. When I’m not launching products for billions of users, I write about design, and teach UX design on Linkedin Learning.

My teaching and writing reflect my personal journey finding a career in user experience. My point of view is from someone who has worked in the tech industry, from the vantage point of not having a formal education in design. I had passion for the craft, and great mentors to learn from.

I have experienced the same anxieties navigating a career in tech and pursuing my passion for user experience as many of the students watching my courses. View all my courses here.
