Buzz Usborne

I’m Buzz — a design coach, startup advisor and product design specialist. Working remotely from the East Coast of Australia, I help creative professionals and design-minded businesses succeed in their craft. With over 16 years experience in building and leading highly successful teams — my approach is friendly, honest and backed by practical experience.

I provide Individual Coaching and Design Direction to high-performing Product Designers — I advise leadership teams on building sustainable and collaborative design practices — and help organizations attract design talent to ensure their team’s continued success. I specialize in remote collaboration, career progression and nuturing efficient, creative and happy teams.

As a coach I’ve advised a number of Australia’s fastest-growing software companies and currently sit on advisory boards to several high-profile US software businesses and VC firms. Previously I have established and led teams at Campaign Monitor, Atlassian, Sendle — and have shaped the visual design for Help Scout, Skype and a number of design agencies across Europe and Australia. I also founded Prevue — a popular and profitable collaboration tool I led to acquisition in ‘18. View my portfolio
