I spent the past three years leading the Experience Design team at e‑bike startup VanMoof
The company may have ended in tragedy, but we did some incredible work along the way. This is the story of growing a world-class team, launching multiple bikes, and establishing an experience strategy to guide priorities across departments.
Establishing a Team
Building the teams and practices companies need to realize the strategic advantages of design
In three years, I built and scaled the Experience Design team at VanMoof. This required retraining the organization, establishing a shared hiring strategy with engineering, and implementing structures to guide the growth of the team.
Designing a Connected Product
Creating seamless experiences around products that bridge physical and digital worlds
I brought together design, engineering, marketing, and operations departments to establish an overarching experience strategy, and then established inclusive processes to drive alignment toward shared outcomes.
Creating a Strategy and a Movement
Defining opportunities so that teams are empowered to set their own destinies
I worked across departments and levels, pulling together top-down and bottom-up approaches into a single overarching strategy to guide our work for the coming quarters and years.
