Lucas Coelho has dedicated his career to design and entrepreneurship. He started out as Jr. Designer working for small agencies and startups before becoming a founding member of 99jobs.com. He went on to co-found UnCollege.org’s Brazilian operations, before serving as a Partner and Strategic Designer at Studio Flama. For the past almost four years, Lucas has served as the VP of design at Roam Digital, focusing on the company's design strategy, process, approach, and professional development of Roam Digital's design team members across New Zealand, Australia, and Singapore.
In case you were wondering what a VP does, a typical day at work for Lucas consists of: attending strategy meetings with senior leadership team, reviewing product decisions in critical projects, connecting people who should be talking with each other, figuring out how to deliver value to a new client, writing documentation, and improving the ways his team works.
