Patrick Chew
Visual Designer, IBM Design


Patrick Chew, better known as PChew, is a software product designer at IBM in Austin, Texas. By day, he works on designing software products for the rapidly changing cybersecurity industry. By night, he runs his passion project: the IBM Make Lab, an internal maker space on IBM’s Austin campus open for any IBMer to use. As one of the first 100 designers hired by IBM, Patrick has been actively involved in shaping the culture of its very young design practice by helping to mentor and educate new designers. Patrick has designed for companies both big and small, from verynice, a tiny social good design firm in LA, to Nike. He was a SXSW interactive mentor in 2016. Patrick holds an award from HOW design magazine, a patent, and a mean table tennis forehand.
