Having worked in the creative industry for over 20 years, Paul Cooper knows it inside and out. He’s been a designer, a freelancer, a director, and a hiring manager—most recently at Microsoft, developing talent and ideas within the Cloud +AI division.

The foundation of FPO is built on his experience and network. He’s in a better position to help you because he’s been you. He’s faced the same demands, sat in the same meetings, watched the same trends, even worried about the same shrinking budgets and timelines.

FPO is designed to curate an inclusive space for creatives and the companies that crave what they do. Dedicated first to focusing on finding the best opportunities for both sides—not just fill seats. And second, to giving back and growing our community.

Paul was my first design mentor. He took a chance on me and helped me become the designer I am today. I was a designer with no design background or credentials, and he took a chance on me. He’s down to earth and knows how to cultivate a fun, empowering culture. His willingness to go the distance and find talent is phenomenal. Being a black designer early in my career, I dealt with serious case of imposter syndrome, and at times felt weak. He really helped me through it and for that I’m forever grateful. Awesome guy and die hard SuperSonics fan (#bringthemback). This is the guy you want building your team.

Paul Cooper is a great Design lead who's superpower is finding, recruiting and growing incredible and diverse talent. In all of my years either working directly on his team or peripherally, I've constantly seen the care he puts into building a team comprised not only of some of the brightest designers but also the most genuine, passionate people. Culture curation comes naturally to him and is something he continues to prioritize his own growth around. He's puts into action what it means to put people first and proves that approach out with their impressive work that follows.

Despite majority of the team starting during covid, Paul did an amazing job cultivating a team and culture that felt inclusive, transparent, was super talented, and had truly bonded. Prior to working for him, I had experience as a creative designer with an interest in UX. Paul was open about seeing potential in me and gave me the opportunity to challenge myself in a new way, which I'm forever grateful for!

Paul is one of the best mentors and team leads I have ever worked for. He's a great ally and I never felt more safe coming to him about an issue at work. He genuinely puts his team on his back and I thank Paul for giving me an opportunity when many didn't.

I learned a lot in my time working with Paul, he’s an exceptional leader and really knows how to create an inclusive, diverse and creative team culture! He is not just fun to work with, but most importantly a person who brings out the best in his team, partners and pretty much everyone around him.
