Jennifer Daniel is the Design Manager of the Expression Design team at Google, overseeing creative direction across stickers, gifs, emoji and camera effects. Her work designing machine learning generated selfie stickers was recognized with a Fast Company Innovation Design Award and her emoji kitchen illustrations have picked up a number of awards and are currently on exhibit at the Society of Illustrators in New York.

Prior to joining Google, Jennifer was an Art Director and Graphics Editor at the New York Times for 10 years. During her time there, she worked in the newsroom covering a breadth of topics—ranging from government shutdowns, to the Olympics, to goth culture. From there, Jennifer went on to become the Graphics Director at Bloomberg Businessweek, where she oversaw the graphics for a number of award-winning issues *during the Turley era* where she led a small and scrappy team of data journalists and designers to research and create all maps, diagrams, charts, and chotckes for the magazine.


Acclaimed for her conceptual, clever, and content-driven approach to illustration and writing, her work has been widely published. Her latest book, The Origin of Almost Everything, explores the universe through charts and diagrams, data, and facts. 

When not working, Jennifer enjoys doing whatever her twin toddlers tell her to do. She lives in Berkeley, but still keeps all of her clocks set to New York time.
