Get to know Bryn

Bio

I’m Bryn — a product designer based in East London. I’ve been designing digital products for 7ish years.

I currently work for digital bank Monzo. Solving real customer problems and helping make money work for everyone. I’m super passionate about using design for positive impact. Leaving the world a bit better than it was before.

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.
