Giles Talbot

Hey! I’m Giles. I’m originally from England, UK, but have been living a nomadic lifestyle more recently. My travels have taken me from Peru to Egypt, and everywhere in between. Along the way, I’ve worked on a range of digital projects with startups, SAAS and blue chip companies.

I’m a creative problem solver with a firm grip on the web, design systems, pattern libraries and style guides. I most enjoy working with color palettes, typography and art direction.

When I’m not helping others with their website, I have a few passion projects that I work on in my spare time. I have my own blog, gilestalbot.com and podcast.

My role at Lean Labs

Designer

What makes me good at it?

Lean principles form the foundations of my design decisions. I have a creative yet strategic mind that loves to solve puzzles. I practice continuous improvement in both growth driven-design and my own personal life.

Why Lean Labs?

  • Attitude: We’re all great at our jobs, and happy to be part of the team.
  • Freedom: My schedule is my own. I can work at home, on the road or in coworking spaces.
  • Transparency: We work transparently and share openly our processes, plans, and progress.
