Luke Brooker

I’m an entrepreneurial designer experienced in design, engineering, product, leadership, and community building.

I thrive on blending disciplines to craft innovative solutionsthat enrich lives and create successful businesses.

I believe the best way to do this is in collaboration with a highly connected and motivated team.


  • Design Leadership - I've led design teams from 2 to 13, fostering a culture of collaboration and growth.
  • Design Systems - I've built and maintained design systems for over 11 years, improving the speed and quality of design and development.
  • Product Strategy - I've worked closely with product and engineering to define and execute product strategy, ensuring alignment across the company.
  • Design Operations - I've improved design operations at each company I've worked at, ensuring the team is set up for success.
