Photo Studio Operations Forum 2023

Co-located with the Festival of Creative Operations, Creative Production Day and the Design Operations Symposium


James Bull

Principal Design Operations Program Manager


I'm a DesignOps leader with over 15 years of experience in design, leadership, and operations. I’m currently at Microsoft, providing Design Operations strategy and support to their collaborative apps portfolio. Previously, I spent 7 years at Shopify, establishing and leading the DesignOps practice as the Design team grew from 150 to 600. I focus on developing strategic systems, programs, processes, and teams that increase design's impact across the business.
My enthusiastic optimism supports change through listening, inspiring, and serving others.
