Jacob Jelen

Hi, I'm Jacob.

Product Designer


Tech and science give us the tools. Design decides how we use them. I step into other people’s shoes, into minds of machines and I immerse myself in complex systems. I think about what should be done and how to do it. I think about what could be done and ask whether it should. I try, test, fail, learn and try again.
