For over a decade, Edwin has worked alongside strategists, user researchers, and fellow designers to help companies develop new products ideas and place people at the center of the design process.
He co-founded Ghost Lab—an independent design studio combining design thinking and design craft—to prototype early-stage product designs and brand identity systems.
He currently works at WeWork Labs—the We Company’s global innovation platform. WeWork Labs provides opportunities for early-stage startups and forward-thinking enterprise companies to connect with fellow entrepreneurs, mentors, and provides access to education resources and programming needed to scale their business.
