Dan Auer

I'm a designer, musician, and gamer in the Bay Area. I lead design at Fitmob and am a co-host for the podcast On The Grid. I lend a hand from time to time as an advisor to Forge. Otherwise, I can often be found gaming with the Freemans.


As the design lead, I established and currently maintain the visual identity of the company. I've also created and maintained the framework and standards for markup and stylesheets for the web presence. I've had the chance to share the responsibility of usability testing, user research, and interaction patterns and workflows with an incredible design and engineering team.

On The Grid

Started in 2012, the podcast explores broad topics through the lens of design criticism. I'm joined by Matt McInerney (a designer a Pentagram) and Andy Mangold (a designer and co-founder of Friends of the Web).

But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing of a pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness.

We've been playing together from a number of years, starting with three friends playing Starcraft. Instead being competitive or trying to remain exclusive, we care more about people having fun and making new friends.
