Hi, I'm Karl-Chris Nsabiyumva.

A Bujumbura-born, Toronto-living Product Designer with a background in Economics, International Trade, and not-for-profit management.

My design style tends to be minimalist, symmetric, with a touch of "tropical colours". I strive for simplicity and convenience. I enjoy product strategy and managing a design team, just as much as I love shipping products.

About

I'm a problem-solver with a knack for design.

I consider myself a generalist, although my favourite part of the design process is ideation. My visual design style tends to be minimalist, symmetric, with a touch of "tropical colours".

Prior to design, I solved problems as trade policy analyst in a government agency, as a not-for-profit co-founder and executive, as a blogger, as a radio show host and producer, and as a digital strategy consultant. I also design apparel.

I was born in Bujumbura, Burundi, grew up in Mombasa, Kenya and did my post-secondary education in England and South Australia. I currently live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Besides English, I'm fluent in French, Kirundi/Kinyarwanda and I speak some Swahili.

When I'm not designing, I'm busy doing my full-time job: being a husband and a dad.
