Hi, I’m Hayden Bleasel 👋
I’m an award-winning, multidisciplinary designer. I’ve spent the last two years creating amazing things for companies I believe in. Now I’m looking for that next opportunity.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with great companies such as Google, Palantir, Canva and Westfield; as well as disruptive startups in self-driving car technology (Baraja), sustainable energy financing (Brighte), 3D biotechnology (Inventia), enterprise-grade cybersecurity (UpGuard) and artificial intelligence (Faethm). I’ve also been fortunate enough to assist the Australian government’s data science and research division, CSIRO Data61.
Before starting a studio, I was Head of Product and Design at Spaceship. I helped the company launch their superannuation product, grow from $0 to $100m in FUM and raise more than $20m from Sequoia, NEA, Valar, Blackbird and AirTree. I also created Presumi — a resume-tracking and analytics platform for online employment marketplaces. It used a unique algorithm that allowed for detailed resume tracking all the way from the candidate to the employer and back again.
I studied at the University of Technology, Sydney where I graduated with two Bachelor degrees (Science in Information Technology and Business). I also started the Sydney Designers meetup, growing it from 0 to over 2500 members in just over a year.
I worked with Hayden during my time at Spaceship. Hayden is a hardworking, talented designer who has consistently produced great work throughout his career. He is flexible and easy to work with. I cannot recommend him enough as a colleague.
