It’s a horrible cliche, but Pete Smart is smart by name and nature. We had the pleasure of introducing him to the UX world a couple of years back, and since then he’s been working with amazing clients in San Francisco, when not hopping between international conferences. He’s a lovely guy and we can’t wait to welcome him back to UX London.
