About

I’m Bryn — a freelance product designer with 8 years of experience. I care a lot about using design for positive impact. Currently based in Copenhagen, Denmark.

I was most recently working at Denmark’s newest unicorn, Pleo. Raising the biggest Series C Denmark has seen. Before that I worked for Monzo — the fastest growing bank in the UK. I led product design for over 4 million customers. I worked across multiple product squads solving complex money problems.

Before Monzo — I was the first design-hire at health startup, Thriva. I led all of Thriva’s design output. From digital products, to test kit packaging, to marketing like their tube campaign. I was the 6th hire and the company grew to 35 whilst there. I played a big part in scaling the product team and processes.

Over the years I’ve worked across health, non-profit, finance, retail, automotive and telecoms. From early-stage startups like Thriva, to FTSE 100 companies like Morrisons, to hypergrowth businesses like Monzo. I’ve also worked with some pretty awesome brands like Adidas, Microsoft and Mastercard.
