Julia Karlsson-Wilson is a Brooklyn-based designer currently leading the product design team at Block Renovation
She studied design at Northeastern University, and began freelancing full-time after graduating while being incubated at Accomplice VC
. She grew this to a tiny product design studio called Bad Design, which she sold to Dept
(fka Rocket Insights) in 2018. She opened the NYC office and led it for a few years before joining Block Renovation to lead and grow the product design team.
Julia spends her time renovating her house upstate, learning Swedish, and running after her two grumpy french bulldogs.
