Design Lead @ Brill.app

I work within a team of five who one day got sick of typing up post it notes (especially after workshops). So we decided to do something about it. Recently featured by Apple in 'New Apps We Love', Brill is a new productivity app combining computer vision and voice to digitise handwritten notes and get them, fast and easy, into people's platforms of choice, eg. Trello or Jira.
