I'm Joshua Bartz.

I design & consult on inclusive products.

Ethical research and design creates a more equitable world. I build teams, refine strategies, champion accessibility, and foster "yes-and" collaboration to breathe life into life-changing software.

How I work

Currently

I'm design consulting and coding.

You'll find me consulting on products that improve lives. I'm also teaching myself front-end development to build this website as my corner of the Internet. Expect frequent changes.

Previously
2017 - 2021

I led design for Jamf Now.

Jamf Now is an Apple-centric mobile device management platform for small businesses without IT and InfoSec backgrounds. I built user experience roadmaps and shipped a new subscription tier with refreshed Mac, iOS, and web apps.

2012 - 2016

I got my start at Code42.

Code42 protects the world's data. I established a user experience practice by leveraging customer support ticket metadata. I redesigned key data management and recovery workflows, and I co-conducted internal usability tests to protect the company's intellectual property. I am still an internal meme.

But also

I devour media.

I'm reading On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong and building a 2022 summer playlist on Apple Music. Also, check out the older playlists.

Psst...Have you seen The Bear yet, on Hulu?

And I write on occasion.

Expect links from across the web, updates on real-world projects, and design and ethics talk — with an infrequent hot take on music, books, and cooking.
