Having a background deeply rooted in design, Christian San Jose has firmly established himself as a trailblazer for young people in creative leadership and tech entrepreneurship.

At 28 years old, he is currently the Co-founder and Managing Director at Make, a UX and technology startup, and subsidiary of Ace Saatchi & Saatchi. He leads a 13-strong user experience team composed of designers, researchers, product managers, and full-stack engineers, while leveraging and deeply integrating with the 130-people operation at Ace Saatchi & Saatchi. They handle UX research and strategy, interactive design, development and technology-focused initiatives for clients such as Cebu Pacific, Carrier, Vimeo, Livestream, Smart, Sun Cellular, and SM Development Corporation.

He previously served as the Head of Digital at MullenLowe Group Philippines, and Head of User Experience and Design at Jump Digital Asia, working on local and international end-to-end digital campaigns for clients such as Mitsubishi, Hyundai, Nike Foundation, 7-Eleven, NutriAsia, Asia Brewery, Japan Tobacco, Solaire Resort and Casino, and Metro Pacific Investments.

At 21, he bootstrapped his first digital startup, Create.ph, and worked on the official branding, website design, and development for some of the biggest clients in the world, including Usher, Kanye West, Kobe Bryant, Usain Bolt, James Harden, Dwyane Wade, and Big Sean, among others. Five years after its inception, Create was successfully fully acquired by Jump Digital Asia.

In the past, he has been an award-winning illustrator, getting the top prize in the Design By Humans $10,000 competition at the age of 19. A year later, his commissioned artwork titled "Rise Together" was included in every commercially released copy of Adobe CS5. His art and merchandise designs have been featured in CNN, CBS, MTV, Computer Arts Magazine, and Nickelodeon. Read Less
