Aleks Melnikova

Aleks Melnikova is an Experience Design Director, on a mission to make a positive difference to the world. Currently building her own small service design studio, Cosmic Velocity. Over the past 15 years she has led design teams across London-based UX/product design agencies such as ORM, Foolproof, BIO, Radley Yeldar, Publicis Poke and Inviqa, delivering successful products and services for a variety of clients in travel, finance, real estate, and healthcare, as well as internal audiences.

Melnikova is an advocate for inclusion and diversity in the most active way: by coming up with (and building) tools and services that open up participation to people from all walks of life and all backgrounds. Tools she has designed and launched helped people and teams find books for kids with diverse representation, understand how to work with Dyslexia, find inclusive imagery and content and make research activities inclusive.

Here’s some of them:
