Growing Design at Monzo

In 2015 they started Monzo with a dream: making money work for everyone. Hugo Cornejo was the only designer in the company so he would design everything. Output quality and bandwidth were quite limited but positive design consistency and communication were great!

Today, with around 1 million customers, Monzo has scaled their design team to more than a dozen amazing people. They've learned a lot during that process. From getting used to seeing processes breaking miserably every six months or so to near misses here and there, unexpected mistakes, soul-searching and also a couple of lucky successes. Hugo will be sharing all this 'stuff' and, mostly, trying to make some sense of what's coming next.

He'll also drop a joke or two, just to check you're all paying attention.
