Wayne Sun

Product Designer in New York City


I'm a designer who cares about making everyone's lives easier.. users, colleagues, wherever and whenever. I had a background in investment banking, specifically focused on the tech sector before I realized I was way more passionate about building things. I cut my teeth in the industry working on Nike brand and digital sports, and built a love for design growing up through entrepreneurship.

My specialty is a mix of product strategy and execution, though i'm always learning something new: these days, i'm more focused on design systems. I've built my experience at places like Blue Apron (fast growth + pre to post IPO), Microsoft (Fluent Mobile for iOS, Android), Instagram (Direct Messaging), and now i'm at Figma.

I also dabble in angel investing where I invest in awesome teams and founders. I've been fortunate enough to invest in nothing.tech (seed), stacked.com (seed), and Guava Capital. I take an active role as an angel to help entrepreneurs create differentiated touchpoints that highlight their specific strengths, and am never afraid to get my hands dirty to bring ideas to life.
