Hi there, I am Laurent, a designer with 8 years of experience building tech products.

Wearing many hats has given me a unique perspective on how to build products successfully.

My work is characterised by an obsession for excellence and clarity.


I am currently the Chief Product & Design Officer at Koober, a mobile app helping people learn every day.

Previously, I have worked as a product designer, product manager and product engineer, in-house and freelance, for established companies as well as pre-Product-Market-Fit startups.

I have built a variety of products: SaaS, marketplaces, eCommerce, consumer and B2B, desktop and mobile.

In my freelance time, I’ve been helping companies ship better products through a combination of direct contribution and mentoring.

Despite having experience in various product roles, I consider myself first and foremost as a product design expert.
