Zander Brade’s
🌸 product & design shop

I partner with high potential and high growth companies to design best-in-class digital products

I'm Zander, a designer working and living in London.

In 2016 I joined the early Monzo team to build the best bank in the world, establishing it as a well-loved product and household name in the UK over the following four and a half years.

My focus has been on shaping the design practice, hiring designers and product people, while defining the core Monzo experience in my role as Principal Designer, as we grew from 4.5k → 4.5m customers.

Prior to Monzo I was based in Berlin, working at Microsoft via way of Wunderlist, a now retired to-do list app.

I'm available for select projects from September 2020.

Over the course of my career I've had the pleasure of mentoring beginner designers who are looking to develop their skills and find their feet in the industry.

If you're currently a design student, or just curious about the fundamentals of design, I'd love to help you in any way I can. You're welcome to drop me an email, and we'll go from there.

I'm available for select projects from late 2022.
