I am Seun Deleawe, a Los Angeles-based product designer, manager, and strategist.
As an analyst-creative hybrid, my eclectic skill set is characterized by deep product intuition, empathetic reasoning, strategic problem solving, uncanny attention to detail, raw business acumen, and the ability to lead multidisciplinary teams.
My process and output are governed by a seven-principle design ethos – the evidence of which permeates my work:
- Born minimalist
- Colors tell stories
- High engagement
- Reinforced meaning
- Intentional limitations
- Always cohesive
I am a Master of Science candidate within the Spatial Informatics Program, a graduate degree program jointly offered by the Viterbi School of Engineering and the Spatial Sciences Institute at the University of Southern California (USC). While enrolled in the Program, I serve as the founder and president of Graduates Rising in Informatics and Data Science (GRIDS), the first graduate student organization within the Department of Computer Science. My undergraduate education was completed at The University of Texas at Austin, where I earned two bachelor's degrees concurrently: a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting.
Prior to attending USC, I worked at Accenture Strategy as a cross-functional, cross-industry analyst. In my short time at the company, I uncovered a $40M cost saving opportunity, sized a $30M 5-year growth opportunity, and helped manage a $300M+ enterprise sales pipeline for my clients.
In addition to product design, I am passionate about technology innovation and entrepreneurship; I enjoy working at the intersection of design, data, and business strategy to build compelling software for users.
I have an intense hunger for knowledge and love learning from various sources. My role models include Massimo Vignelli, Steve Jobs, and Virgil Abloh – all of whose work I reference for inspiration.
