Joe Formica

Founder, Bitesize UX
Joe has taught UX Design at General Assembly in New York for six years as a Distinguished Faculty Member, and has created and taught Entrepreneurship courses at Fordham University Business School. Through these roles, he has worked with thousands of designers-in-training to help them take the next steps in their career.

In addition to teaching, Joe has been a self-employed Senior Product Designer for the past eight years. He has worked with dozens of clients, ranging from Fortune 500 companies, to new startups, where he has played an integral role in their growth and success. Joe believes that there is no substitute for learning by doing - all Bitesize courses are hands-on, project based, and beginner friendly. If you take a class with Joe, you’re guaranteed to walk out with a tangible project that you're proud to show off to the world. Joe works every day to solve "need experience to get experience" problem that prevents people from exploring new skills, roles, and careers in technology, and believes that learning as an adult should be exciting, fun, and rewarding - not daunting.
