Phil Clevenger - Lightroom Interface Designer

I worked with Phil a long time ago at Metacreations. He was the main interface designer (along with Kai Krause). Here is an interview with him about what brought him to Adobe – and what he learned from his time at MetaCreations designing rule-bending interfaces for software like Bryce and Kai’s PhotoSoap. He also gives some hints at some possible directions of the Lightroom UI, and his philosophy around the evolution of user interfaces in general.
