Jared Spool
Co-Founder, Center Centre and Conference Chairperson, User Interface Conference.
Yoni is brilliant. Period. He's an amazing developer. Understand UX like the best of them. Is sharp as a whip. Anyone who seeks advice from ... him will be way better off than when they started.
Louis Rosenfeld
We worked together at Rosenfeld Media  •  Publisher, Rosenfeld Media. Previously Principal, Louis Rosenfeld LLC. University of Michigan grad. University of Michigan grad.
Yoni offers a killer combination of smarts in so many areas that contemporary businesses--especially startups--need to succeed.
Jay Zaveri
We worked together  •  Co-founder, Chief Product Officer, CloudOn and Advisor | Investor | Mentor, Early stage tech companies.
Jonathan thinks of the whole design experience - why users would need to use a product, what are the important ingredients to make the produ ... ct successful, what are the experiences that would bring delight, quickly prototypes and brings ideas to life so they can be tested. These are all the hallmarks of a good entrepreneur in their pursuit of bringing products to life.
Christina Wodtke
They're my mentor  •  Adjunct Professor, California College of the Arts and Instructor & Curriculum Designer, General Stanford grad.
Brilliant determined and caring. You want him as your cofounder. You may not be able to get him. He doesn't settle.

Dave Gray
They're my friends  •  Founder and CEO, Liminl and Board Member, Rosenfeld Media.
I've always found Jonathan to be a thoughtful, creative, enthusiastic person with high integrity. I'd be interested in learning about nay pr ... ojects he's involved with.
Eduardo F. Ortiz
They're my friends  •  Director of User Experience, Ralph Lauren and Experience Designer, deconstructUX.
Yoni is one of the brightest designer/developer/ux type I've ever had the opportunity to work with. There wasn't a problem that I attempted ... to solve that Yoni found challenging or that he didn't have something to add to in order to make it a better solution. I've known Yoni for over 6 years, and he's been there for me professionally and personally - I highly recommend him.
Chris Baum
We worked together  •  Partner, Futuredraft. Previously Editor-in-Chief, Boxes and Arrows. Vanderbilt grad.
Yoni's skills basically demand that he be entrepreneurial. The typical professional boxes don't really do him justice. He's a designer that ... thinks in code. He deconstructs a problem extremely quickly, then dives into it and manifests it in various ways until he finds the right one. This allows him to work in deeply complex environments easily. Collaborating with him has been fairly effortless, and he often delivers more than is expected - just because he found an interesting angle or was driven by a particular opportunity. Finally, Yoni has the temperament for the entrepreneur's life. The ability to quickly shift between various activities needed to keep a venture going is baked into his constitution.
Michael Angeles
They're my friends  •  Director of User Experience, Balsamiq, LLC. Previously Director of User Experience, Traction Software.
Yoni is one of the smartest and most knowledgeable people I know in the UX community. Design and development are inextricable when he talks ... about problem solving. I've witnessed how he can see and understand the path toward creating engaging products the way others cannot. I would back his efforts immediately should he be in a position to create a product of his own.
