Jean Popescu Product Designer Copenhagen

Hi, my name is Jean Octavian Popescu and 
I'm a Product Designer
I have maintained product design libraries and help businesses to build theirs

Working in Copenhagen since 2014

Started at the end of 2020 as a Product Designer within Templafy design team. With a reponsability to maintain the design system and improve it. Design tokens, documentation, responsiveness and accessibility are the major themes within design system team and our responsibilities. Besides that we are looking into creating a more consistent experience cross-platforms by setting our own design patterns and UX principles.

Served as a UX/UI Desinger in the design department at Sitecore between 2017-2020. Builded up the foundation of a design system and we have been through challenges such as organizational changes and new branding. Acted as a service team in the product department. 

Helping my friends at Shipmondo to accelerate their user engagement through design ideas. It's a B2B product service used by webshops in Denmark as Pakkelabels and recently launched the international version called Shipmondo. Helping them them on and off since 2013. I am so proud of them that they managed to keep their Trustpilot score so high for such a long time and win numerous startup awards

Writing on Medium

Football collector. My collection consists of vintage shirts from the 90s european teams. But my aim is to write and document the shirt designs of Romanian football clubs and the national team. I also write personal opinions about the sport and digital concepts. Some stories found their way into sports publications, others are waiting to be discovered.

Football in Copenhagen

I’m helping expats in Copenhagen to meet locals through football. I moderate a local Facebook group with 1000+ members. Used to organise two or three times a week football games for the members. Finding pitches, have necessary equipment to play and forming the teams. Fostering a community through one common goal: football.

Promoting Primal Running

Started running in 2017. Without realizing I kept doing it more regularly untill I read the book, you know which one: Born To Run. Instantly I started a primal approach to the activity itself. I realised it leads me to do a lot of mindfulness running. I am an advocate for barefoot movement.  

Since then I'm researching and learning about world's class athletes and their own beliefs. What are their challanges and how they become game changers. What keeps them up there, at the top of their game? 

Also I ran with the Tarahumara in Copper Canyon, with the Caballo Blanco gang. 

The athletes I am fond of are: Barefoot Ted, Scott Jurek, Tarahumara tribe, Eliud Kipchoge, María Lorena Ramírez

3 years ago I started running. Without realizing I kept doing it more regularly untill I read the book. Instantly I started a minimalistic approach to the activity itself. I realised that this approach leads me to a state of mindfulness. I am an advocate for minimal running and barefoot running. Feel free me to contact me to open a discussion about the subject. 

Since then I'm researching and learning about world's class athletes secrets and their own beliefs. I always wonder what keeps them up there, at the top of the game.

Giving Back to The Community

I balance my day job with personal creative work together with friends realizing solutions, mostly with a focus on local communities. So I have achieved with my friend Bogdan the first (unofficial) mobile app of a football club in Romania and popular projects 1dece and joinhora celebrating the National Day of Romania. Nominated for local digital awards and attention on social media we had the great honour to be invited and speak at TEDxBucharest City 2.0 about our work and involvement in the community in 2013. 

In 2012 I went to Brussels for the summer and designed a student project for NATO as a volunteer, then I have been part of the volunteer staff for Eurovision in 2014. Been to Brazil, as a volunteer designer, part of a larger team trying to solve community problems through creative solutions.

I like giving back to the community. I want to share everything I learn.
