Annabelle Régent

Design Lead

What do you do at &us?

I shape and bring ideas to life, building internal capability on the way. As a lead, I’m responsible for scoping and winning new work and leading and delivering high-quality projects where design plays a role 

I’m also co-leading our Design team, mentoring and upskilling designers with a variety of experiences and backgrounds while looking after their well-being. I’m part of internal initiatives such as the Delivery squad to up ‘quality’ across the board.

What do you care about most in your work?

Designing impactful and meaningful experiences that create a spark and improve people’s lives.

Working from an eclectic mix of clients on different challenges – it rarely gets boring

Collaboration – whether that means co-creating, mentoring or leading to empower others.

What did you do prior to &us?

I worked in-house for various e-commerce brands at different maturity levels (from single-brand startup to international group).

What you might not know about me…

I’ve lived abroad a third of my life, spending many months and years by myself in cities such as Tokyo, NYC, Berlin and London; which have been critical in sparking my creativity, building my resilience and helping me empathise with people regardless of their culture, language and background.
