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. I care deeply about creating world-class, useful and beautiful products that help people and make a difference. I like to be involved at different stages of a digital project, from the seed of the idea, through to sketches, design and even the front-end and WordPress build. As a freelancer, this means I can jump in at any stage of a project, or take on the whole project, from design to build.
I’ve been doing this professionally for 15 years. In 2014 I was invited overseas to the United States to take on a lead role as the solo product designer and creative director of a new Adobe product. Pre-2014 I was a freelance web designer and front-end developer for clients around the world. More 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.
Tha’s from Yorkshire, England. 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 in New York City — in 2018, I returned to being a remote freelance web designer and developer, and Curator of Club of the Waves. Please do say hello — I look forward to hearing about your awesome project.
