I'm Luke Pieczynski and I am an innovation evangelist, career development expert, and experienced digital strategist focused on developing business-critical, user-focused products.
As a creative leader with almost two decades of experience, I have the distinct honor of leading creative strategy and delivery for products and services that reach millions. I develop, support, and lead teams of designers and developers who engage in high-level problem-solving in fast-paced environments to ship meaningful products.
As a thinker and doer, I combine strategic thinking with creativity to exceed business and user needs. I have led and supported people and agencies all over the world, from New York City to London to Hong Kong. My entrepreneurial spirit combined with my experience across multiple industries allows me to offer very valuable insights to many organizations.
I have a passion for coaching and developing the people around me. I am focused on enabling a healthy team culture and empowering my teammates to be more confident in their expertise—to be decision-makers and the future generation of creative leaders.
My career journey includes being an Interactive Art Director and Digital Strategist in the finance and investment industry, a Creative Manager at a Fortune 500 retailer, and Director of Multimedia Services at a design agency. These roles, plus the years of individual contributor experience as a designer and developer, have given me a holistic view of customer interactions that help me identify the best ways to reach an organization’s target audience.
