PicsArt Opens UK Hub In Latest Global Expansion Move

The announcement follows PicsArt’s recent hiring of its VP of Design, acclaimed designer Duncan Riley, who is based in the U.K. In this role, Riley will lead the expansion of the new hub, which will be focused on Product Development and Design. Riley brings more than 18 years of experience growing creative teams and crafting global user experiences for a host of leading brands, including Shazam, Skyscanner, Snapchat, NBCUniversal, Viacom, Absolute Radio and more.
“At PicsArt we are building the best all-round creator experience possible, allowing anyone and everyone to perfect their everyday moments, express their passions, promote their business, or even create art. I'm excited to get started with the incredible talent here at PicsArt, and begin growing the UK-based team to support our vision in 2021,” Riley shared.
Of the buildout, PicsArt founder and CEO Hovhannes Avoyan says, “As a globally-minded and operated company of more than 700 employees, our goal is to best serve the many ways PicsArt creators use our product across the world.
