Meet Elegant Themes’ “New” Director of Design Kenny Sing – The Divi Nation Podcast, Episode 57

Hey Divi Nation, we’ve got an exciting episode for you this week! We talk to the original designer of Divi himself, Kenny Sing.

For those of you who do not know, Kenny was formerly part of the Elegant Themes team from 2013 to 2015 in which time he was central to the creation of our flagship product: Divi. He left for a while to work at a little known company named Google. While he was away Divi grew from a popular experiment to the most popular WordPress theme in the world. Now he’s back to help us take Divi to even greater heights. Hear all about it in today’s show!

  1. Congratulations and welcome back, Kenny!

  2. I look forward to learning more from you! 🙂

  3. Great interview! It was awesome to meet you Kenny and hear about some of your thought processes towards Divi. It is definitely a beast and you’re going to have a massive job on your hands implementing some of the features you touched on! Being a designer first and foremost I appreciated your discussion about not replacing other tools but building on them in a useful way. However it is going to be a challenge to further develop Divi with so many different personas within the community! Good luck! I look forward to seeing how Divi evolves from here!

  4. So good to hear from your Kenny and super excited that you’re back.

    I can’t wait to see what’s coming.

    Nice to see a live Ep too Nathan! Make it fun to watch.

  5. Just finished watching the interview –

    Wow, Kenny! I look forward to seeing what you come up with for all the possibilities of user experience. That seems like a very complex process to mentally sort out, given all the options and doors each user could choose to open.

    I’m glad you noted that you don’t want to close doors on the user, or put them into a box (like, “You said you wanted a restaurant website, so these are the only options for that”), which can be too limiting. I’m reminded of a website theme whose demo looks like it’s for a diner with menu boxes in a row on the home page – we ended up using that theme for a bike tour website because the design had the kind of feel the client was looking for. So even though the demo made it seem like it was meant for only one avenue, it became something else that looked pretty cool with a different kind of content in it. I think it’s really important to keep the creative possibilities open so something you might not “see” as a possibility at first might end up being just what you need and look really amazing in a way you could have never immediately imagined, based on what has come before online.

    So I really look forward to seeing what you create and what we can do with it. I hope it expands our options and our imaginations! 🙂

  6. Love it! Keep up the great work with Divi, can’t wait to see what the future holds.

  7. Nice interview and article.

  8. Love the documentation idea. Looking forward for new pre made layout additions to the builder.

  9. I missed you man.
    Seriously !
    Welcome back.
