Duarte Carrilho da Graça


I am a product designer leader with dual-training in economics and design

With a degree in design from Central Saint Martins in London, and a degree in economics from Nova Business School in Lisbon, my core work draws from experience in art direction, user experience patterns, research, and coding.

In my current role as Domain Design Leader at Klarna I hold the responsibility of design deliverables and activities for a group of products. The role also includes management of the designers in the team, overseeing their daily delivery and ways of working. In addition, I fill the role of competence lead for the wider design spaces of Sustainability & CRM, with responsibility over the quality of the design delivery, individual mentoring and career development.

At The Guardian, I redesigned the iOS & Android apps and led design for new features, from concept to release. I am also an experienced editorial designer, working in news events like UK & US elections, as well as reveals like the Cambridge Analytica Files.

As an independent designer, I designed digital platforms for clients such as Central Saint Martins, Camden Council, book publisher Visual Editions, and Vice.
