Jessica Brown is an experienced design leader, with years of building design teams from the ground up to craft award-winning user experiences. She’s currently a staff product designer at Faire. Fascinated by the co-evolution of culture and technology, she loves leading teams to find simple design solutions to complex problems. At Clutter, she is focused on growing a design team to tackle the real-world challenges of moving and storing items through well-designed technology. 

Previously the Director of UX at VICE Media, she led the product design team, showcasing VICE’s distinct storytelling through crisp, bold digital experiences on web, mobile, and TV apps. While at VICE, she’s managed the design for major initiatives including a network-wide site redesign, brand new VICE mobile apps, VICELAND mobile and TV apps, and a custom CMS.

Jessica was also part of Rent the Runway, where she established UX and research practices to bring users’ stories into the product development process. Before that, she consulted with a variety of startups in the Bay Area—from ecommerce, to enterprise software, to social media—and went on to co-found and raise funding for a fashion/tech startup called Threadflip. 

She studied math and computer science at Stanford, and couples her techie sensibilities with a humanist approach to design.
