Join us in welcoming Jennifer Sarich-Harvey as our new Co-Chair for the 2020 Interaction Awards!

Jennifer Sarich-Harvey is the VP of Experience Design at PillPack where she leads design, research, and the experience vision. PillPack, acquired by Amazon in 2018, is a full-service pharmacy whose services are designed to help customers live healthier lives by taking the right medications at the right time. Jenn brings her design leadership to the creation and orchestration of moments both on and off the screen. She collaborates with teams to help foster creative culture and show how design can be a driving force for organizational change.

Jenn works to demystify complexity in large systems and uses design to deliver discrete interactions that reinforce a company’s brand and mission. She has designed services, interactions, and experiences across the globe at the forefront of retail, consumer products, and healthcare, has developed design curriculum for Venture for Canada, and helped found a
feminist hackerspace in Sweden. Prior to joining PillPack, she was at IDEO where she led work focused on service and interaction design and organizational change programs, including co-leading Intercorp’s La Victoria Lab, an Innovation Studio in Lima, Peru. Her work at the lab focused on designing world-class services for the rapidly growing middle class and growing the lab’s digital design capacity.

As a designer, her work has been exhibited at the Cooper Hewitt, Media Lab Prado (Madrid), The New Institute (Rotterdam), SXSW, and The Design Exchange (Toronto). She has been recognized with awards from FastCompany, IDSA, Webby Awards, and Core77. Jenn got her
start in fashion — designing apparel, textiles, and housewares for celebrity home brands in Canada. She graduated with a BDes in Fashion Design at Ryerson University (Toronto), and later studied Industrial Design and received an MA in Interaction Design from Umeå Institute of Design in Sweden.

We’re thrilled to have Jenn join the team and we look forward to her leadership and vision to shape this year’s #IxDAwards!
