Jess Brown

Hi, I'm Jess, a product designer, speaker, and writer based in Brooklyn, New York. I'm the Director of UX at VICE Media, and was previously at Rent the Runway.


I'm fascinated by the co-evolution of culture and technology, and I love tackling complex challenges and finding simple design solutions.

Since joining VICE in 2015, I've led the design of five major initiatives–a network-wide site redesign, a new platform for VICE Video, new flagship VICE mobile apps, a suite of VICELAND digital products, and a fresh CMS.

I'm available for speaking gigs, and often game to chat design over coffee. I also write on Medium and tweet.
