Dale Herigstad

Chief Creative Officer, Schematic

Dale Herigstad is an internationally recognized thought leader on the future of media consumption in an interactive and “many-screen” world of increasingly rich media interfaces.

With an extensive background in Broadcast Design
and branding, he has pioneered a unique spatial context approach to designing advanced navigation systems for Interactive TV and connected screens. From this work are emerging new content mediums that blur the line between TV and Games—and, in fact, Dale is currently engaged with a variety of Schematic teams to redefine what Television is becoming.

Dale was a part of the research team that developed the visionary gestural interfaces that first appeared in the film “Minority Report,” and is now leading development work in the rapidly emerging world of gestural navigation for screens at a distance.

Dale has taught Motion Graphics at California Institute of the Arts, Art Center College of Design, and UCLA. He is active with the AFI Digital Content Lab, and is a member of the TV Academy, AIGA, and ITA, and received one of the first ITVT Interactive TV Leadership Awards. Dale has 4 Emmy awards.
