Design Director

Hi, I'm Julian
Design Manager at Meta
Former Design Lead at Wise

I am an innovative and highly creative Design Director with a track record in building and leading international teams, developing measurable strategies, directing award-winning campaigns and designing impactful products that people love.






Driven by solving complex problems through simple, well-crafted design, I build and manage international teams across several continents and time zones. I am experienced in hiring diverse teams, scaling design and promoting a strong remote workplace culture.

Sharing thoughts on Lean UX, Startup Culture and Branding, I’ve spoken at Money2020 in Amsterdam, the FLA: Design Thinking & Innovation week in London and other events and meetups.
