Product Designer

Jay Lee

I'm Jay, a product designer from Toronto, currently working as a Director of Product Design at Intersect. I'm a maker by nature and believe a great idea requires a solid foundation to execute, validate, and iterate. With this in mind, I strive to develop robust, scalable design systems that meet both user and business needs.
