I'm a New York-based Product Designer who gets energized by solving challenging problems with creative, beautiful, and memorable designs. I ramp up quickly on new projects and thrive being in a leadership role, having been the sole designer in many of my past teams.
My experiences range from helping fight climate change as Lead UX/UI Designer at energy storage startup Blip to making payments smoother and more innovative at fintech startup Klarna, where I'm currently working. I'm helping Klarna become the most agile and visionary payments and shopping company in the US.
When I'm out of office, you can find me eating my way through the city, gallery hopping, making jewelry or binge watching the latest Netflix release.
Justine’s work on crafting user experiences is exceptional. She designed entire end-to-end user journeys and demonstrated a deep understanding of how to design sharp, frictionless consumer-first experiences. Justine balanced and executed all aspects with consistent precision and craft - gathering critical feedback, iterating rapidly and constantly challenging the status quo.
As a critical design partner on our product team, Justine’s leadership has evolved our team, elevating our level of thinking, customer focus and precision. I attribute her effectiveness to not only her ability to craft but also her ability to build trusted influence with stakeholders across different functions.
- Roger Tseng, Head of Product at Klarna
Justine is a very talented UI/UX designer who really understands the balance between research and design, and gets stuff done. Justine and I worked together at Blip, a smart battery startup, where I supervised her in an ever-changing environment.
Her biggest strengths are her ability to strategically think about a problem and solve it creatively, while keeping the nuances and details in mind. She is a true self-starter who works quickly and thoughtfully — while she was at Blip, she overhauled our website, mapped out complex user flows and designed our onboarding and user dashboard products. Justine is a wonderful person to work with and would be a great asset to any company!
- Thibaut Feremans, CTO + Co-Founder at Blip
Justine’s product design skills are rock solid, from her craft, execution to communication & leadership skills. She approaches design with the customer at the center every time, with a craft and eye for design that is of a high caliber and at par with design leaders with years of experience on her.
All that said, the trait that sticks out most is her rate of learning & output trajectory. I took a bet on Justine early in her design career and it was the best bet I took at Klarna. You would be lucky to have her.
- Hannah Boese, Product Manager at Klarna
I had the pleasure to work on the same team with Justine where I got to witness first hand what a rockstar designer she is! Our team regularly was faced with tight deadlines and ever evolving objectives, obstacles that have never hindered Justine from demonstrating her creative problem solving skills and always delivering quality, well-reasoned designs that blow away our team and end stakeholders. All of her design work has been beyond thorough, with Justine always being ready with multiple variations for the team’s feedback and a strong, customer-obsessed rationale to explain her design process.
