Welcome to the
To help the daring
build design legendary companies.
When we help teams ship and iterate core features, we focus on the total experience — not just the pixels in their app. When we storyboard, we draw what’s happening in the world and what’s happening in their product. We also help Sequoia companies tell their story and build healthy design orgs with the structures, processes and measurement tools they need to thrive.
Along the way, high-performing designers join the Sequoia Creative Lab for fast-paced, one-on-one, hands-on projects as Design Fellows and Visiting Designers. Design Fellows typically have 1–5 years experience and an urgent desire to sublimate their design career with a big jump forward while Visiting Designers bring their expertise on specific topics for short-term projects.
Design Fellows join the Sequoia Creative Lab for 3 – 12 months to lead product design projects for companies within the Sequoia portfolio. After the fellowship, they aim to find a full-time home on one of the portfolio's design teams.

Sue developed her passion in art and design at Rhode Island School of Design, where she studied industrial design. Inheriting industrial design principles, Sue focuses on design that reflect on simplicity, honesty, and detail orientation. Her product design work has created impact both on and off-screen and she looks forward to work on products that value both kinds of user experiences.

Jules is a product designer who first became interested in design and typography while working on her college's newspaper in upstate New York. A stickler for details, she likes building design systems that prioritize consistency over pixel-perfection. After she leaves the lab, she's looking forward to joining a team where she can continue to develop her front-end skillset.
More than just pixels
A lasting network
When their time at the Lab comes to a close, we support each designer with a network of past Fellows and Visiting Designers, as well as access to the larger community of designers who work across the Sequoia portfolio.

We're always looking for talented and passionate people to join us. If you’re an experienced designer looking to work on fast-paced, hands-on projects with Sequoia and our portfolio, we'd love to hear from you.
