JeanPoPescuProfile

Hi, my name is Jean Popescu and 
I'm a UX/UI Designer. I build products and help businesses with great vision to build theirs.

I'm based in Copenhagen.

What I've Been Up to Recently

Serving as a UX/UI Desinger in the design department at Sitecore since January 2018. We recently started building up the foundation of a design system for our team and we have been through challenges such as organizational changes and new branding. We act as a service team in the product department. 

Helping my friends at Shipmondo to accelerate their user engagement through design friendly ideas. It's a B2B product service used by webshops in Denmark (Pakkelabels) and recently they launched an international version (Shipmondo). Been with them since 2017. I am so proud of them that they managed to keep their Trustpilot score so high for such a long time. 

Side activities

Checking out Dribbble 

I design digital products for 7 years now. For medium and large tech companies. Worked in agencies. Freelance, Part-Time or Full Time. A lot of rejected designs come through which end up on my public profile.

Writing on Medium

I collect football jerseys. My collection consists of vintage jerseys from the 90s european teams. But my aim is to write and document the jersey designs of Romanian football clubs and the national team. I also write personal opinions about the game. 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. I 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 Running & Minimalism

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 it leads me to do a lot of mindfulness running. I am an advocate for minimal running and barefoot running. Feel free to write me to open a discussion about the subject. I have run over 40 official races in sandals or barefoot.

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? 

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

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 balanced 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 2012 I went to Brussels and designed a project for NATO as a volunteer, I have been part of the volunteer staff for Eurovision. Back in 2014 I went to Brazil, as a creative, part of a larger team trying to solve community problems through creative ideas. Also as a volunteer. 

I like to help out if I can.
