Steve Turbek leads the User Experience team at a premier financial services firm, helping to create efficient and enjoyable experiences for their users. By infusing user-centered design with metrics, research, and engineering, his team is making user experience a core cultural value of the firm.
Between 2012 & 2017, he helped the Fidelity user experience team grow to one of the largest in-house teams and deliver unprecedented customer impact. Previously, he founded the User Experience group at Morgan Stanley. He got his start in digital design as employee #2 at Razorfish back in the 90's.

Steve was a visiting professor at Pratt Institute and the New School. His work has won the Taka-Fugi International Design Competition and the Art Directors Club Interactive awards.
Outside of digital design work, Steve is probably best known for making the Bubble Calendar, which he maintains is a product of user experience thinking. He's lucky to be married to a strong lady and dad to two good kids.
