Hello. I'm Andrew Couldwell.

I’m a designer who codes. I’ve worked internationally, in-house and remotely on projects for leading brands, agencies, startups and charities. User experience and problem solving are central to everything I do. I care deeply about creating world-class, useful and beautiful products that help people and make a difference.

I emigrated to New York City in 2014. I am now based in Winter Park with my lovely wife, Meagan Fisher and three cats. After three years leading the design and creative direction of products, teams and design systems at Behance (Adobe) and WeWork — in 2018, I returned to being a remote freelance web designer and developer, Curator of Club of the Waves, and Creative Director at Owl Studios. Please do say hello — I look forward to hearing about your awesome project.

Experience

I’ve been doing this professionally for 14 years. In 2014 I was invited overseas to the United States (on an O-1 visa) to take on a role as the solo product designer and creative director of Adobe Portfolio. Before that, in 2013/14 I lead design at a charity startup in London called Believe.in. Pre-2014 I was a freelance web designer and front-end developer for clients around the world. Most recently, in 2016/17 I lead a small team of designers and pioneeered system design and digital brand guidelines at WeWork. Most recently, in 2018 I obtained a U.S. EB-1 extraordinary ability green card — returning to freelance web design and development.
