Nick Taranto-Grimes

I commenced my career as a Graphic Designer, studying Communication Design at Swinburne and further abroad at Düsseldorf University in Germany. I've spent the bulk of my career designing digital products for SaaS companies at Xero and Zendesk. In recent years, I've focussed on building passionate, collaborative and user-centric design teams.

I joined Zendesk in 2014, not long after it's public listing on the NYSE. At the time, our business and Creative Department was about to embark on a significant period of growth that continues today. From Melbourne, I established our local design practice and built out a nimble, talented team, before expanding my focus to other areas of the business.

Today, I lead design for our conversations and developer platforms.
