Hi, I'm

Léa Mendes

Designer / Speaker / Feminist 

Fighting for users & inclusion 🌈✊✊🏻✊🏽✊🏿

Hey there, bienvenue ;)

I am Léa, product designer based in Paris, France. 


I’m currently VP Design at Payfit, an ambitious start up, where I work on simplify payrolls and HR management trhough technology. And by the way, I'm hiring a team, so if you are designer (product, UX, UI, brand) or user researcher, and whish to join a fantastic company in Paris, contact me.


I’m a follower of collaborative methodologies such as Lean UX, or Design Thinking.


I have the chance to do a job that fascinates me, so I talk about it anytime I have the opportunity to do so. 

I’m also feminist*, with the conviction that all humans should be equal in rights. So on my free time, I organize events with the great team of Hexagon UX, an international organization, to empower women and non-binary people in the product design world.


By the way, we organize design events in Paris and we are looking for speakers, if you want to share your experience as designer or user researcher, you can ping us on hexagonux.paris@gmail.com.



*Feminism: The radical notion that women are people. Theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes.
