Klare writing in a notebook

Klare Frank is a product design leader with over a decade of experience in ux, design, and code.

Product Design Lead


I most recently led design for CodePen, a well-established startup founded in 2012 with over 7 million users, primarily front-end designers and developers. As the design lead, I have autonomy over design and UX, including deciding on design tooling, how we run user research, and the entire end-to-end product experience, from the onboarding to browsing to coding and billing experiences. I also run weekly planning meetings, and design internal product management docoumentation for our team.
