Matthew Paul

Specializing in Systems & Tools


Hi, I’m Matthew — a Software Product Designer and Design Engineer with 10+ years of experience leading the design process on product teams, building design systems, and engineering high-craft, high-polish product experiences.

I believe that building software is a team sport; the best products are built where design and engineering come together, and when work feels like play.

I most recently spent the last year at Bubble, designing the Native Mobile Apps editor, establishing the foundations of our design system, Pop, as well as designing and building 20+ new components.

Previously, I was the founding designer for both The.com and QA Wolf. Prior to that, I worked on designer / developer tools and design systems at InVision. I got my start in software at IBM, where I designed a variety of enterprise software products across different organizations. During that time, I also contracted with Apple, where I prototyped apps for the Apple at work program. In 2014, I co-founded the Make Lab, a printmaking space in IBM’s Austin Studio.
