Years working with founders, agencies, and enterprise teams.
Startups, agencies, and Fortune 100 companies partnered with.
Customers have used products I've helped manage, design, & build.
Korpi Design Co. is the independent design practice of Kevin Korpi - a product leader, designer, & strategist.
I'm currently running my own design studio but, over a 20+ year product design career, I've also both led teams and been a senior principal/staff designer at super awesome places like GoPro, Contour Cameras, Amazon Kindle, Moment, Google, Microsoft Research, and a too many hardware/software startups in the US and Japan to list.
I'm comfortable working with just about any stage of company or team across the spectrum from ideation to MVP to V1 to iterating a mature product.
I'm looking to work on products and services that make people's lives better.
Design isn't a secret formula. It's a team sport. 🙌🏼

His work was high quality and always on time. Although Kevin was remote, he had tremendous impact as the design lead and strategist. Our launch would not have been possible without Kevin's ability to quickly ramp up and fit into the existing team."
