Aral Balkan is an experience designer working to empower people to own their own tools and data. His approach is to bring experience design to the world of open technology, to create open products that consumers actually want. He is also an award‐winning speaker and a board member of CodeClub.

While at Lighthouse Studio, Aral developed and launched Indie Phone, an ambitious initiative to build a beautiful new mobile platform and a phone that empowers regular people to own their own data. He also organised screenings of the eye-opening documentary Terms and Conditions May Apply, and gave our November monthly talk, Digital Feudalism, and How to Avoid It.
