I am Stacey Mendez.

Founder of MDZ Design, and currently a London based Design Manager introducing design thinking in the world's leading youth travel brand, STA Travel. British born with a Carribean heritage, I like to bring the best of both worlds into my design, which is often referred to as design thinking combined with a strong graphical appeal. I gathered my first few experiences internationally, learning 'traditional' Industrial Design, managing client relationships, and then developed interests in story-telling, strategic design, and branding.  In 2016, I set up MDZ Design to work with entrepreneurs who wanted to add design value to their ideas. I am passionate about bringing brands or branded product ideas to life, through craftmanship, semantics user understanding and story-telling. The most important things I have learnt in my career to date, is the value of teamwork and the gumption of just getting stuff done. Before MDZ Design, I was the Co-founder and Lead Designer at tech start-up Electric Jukebox creating 'Roxi' from inital idea to final production and campaign launch.

"My career is the typical designer story, I started in small design studios then graduated on to bigger companies. One day, I found myself being tasked to copy another design and I realised I wasnt getting any creative satisfaction or challenge out of it. Having learnt that design is a strategic tool for business success, I wanted a way to work with companies to add real design value.  

I set up MDZ Design to work closely with companies that aim to differentiate; those that have the freedom to stand out and are brave enough to believe they actually can."
