“I’m trying to change the world, experience by experience, for good,” says Van Sedita, Lead Product Designer at ConsenSys. For most of his professional life, he’s worked for agencies, larger corporations, and small startups. Today, he prefers working remotely while still being on a fixed team, saying that he finds more idea sharing and potential there than his previous jobs at other companies.
Van describes his work as “designing for positive human change”. With this mindset, he’s facilitated design thinking sessions, led creative teams and crafted holistic experiences for his clients, including corporations, startups, and for other pro bono community efforts. He also shared his talent as an Adjunct Instructor at New York University teaching professionals User Experience Design to help develop their design skills.
He’s also a full-time husband and father. That’s why he chose to be a member of The Mill’s community to stay close to his wife’s workplace and their baby’s daycare. Plus, there’s the coffee, WiFi, and lunch bar—everything he needs to fuel him the entire day.
