Gian Cruz

Hi, I’m Gian.
I’m a designer, director, and team leader currently in San Francisco, CA





I found my passion for design when I discovered the internet as a teenager and my dad handed me a book called “Creating Cool Web Pages With HTML”. Within days, I had my own pages on Angelfire and GeoCities, and the rest is history.

Today, I have over 10 years of experience in product design, UX, and branding, as well as over 2 years of experience in team leadership and management.

To me, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing a beautifully executed design delighting and gratifying its users.



Gian has a talent for communicating design thinking and process in a manner that is accessible to everyone. Most importantly, he is understanding, friendly, and stands up for his team, the process, and the work. He elevates those around him, which I think is the most important trait a director could have.

His leadership encouraged excellent morale with team building events, collaborative projects and productive meetings. He confidently represented my team and our concerns when meeting with executives. Gian took care to treat me as a person rather than an employee and I will always appreciate his time as my manager.
— Amanda Flagg, Editorial Designer
