Strategically driven designer living at the intersection of culture and technology.

I am a generalist by design. In the past ten years I have worked inside reputable studios making iOS and web apps for industry leaders. I led startup clients towards acquisition and fund raising goals. I worked in-house at Condé Nast touching the most recognized names in journalism and culture. I co-founded a hardware startup, raised money and understand what startups need from a design partner first hand. I am continuously studying how future technology will shape society, people, interaction and design.

I am strategic minded and data driven. My true value comes from understanding the core problem facing your business and problem solving for impactful change. I have worked on projects that require deep scientific and mathematic understanding as well as with brands who bring their value through cultural impact. I work directly with my clients who hire me for:

  • Product Strategy
  • User Experience
  • UI Design

My approach is fast paced and pragmatic. I'm not tied to traditional agency process, instead I will tailor my work to what is best suited for your team. I work best with founding teams looking for an experienced designer with a realistic outside perspective and product empathy. I move efficiently and thoughtfully keeping technical and business goals in mind.

I work on a flat fee basis per project. I am based in Manhattan and collaborate with teams worldwide. If you have a project in mind that you think I’d be a good fit for, let’s talk! You can e-mail me at karol@karolmunoz.com
