Ian McDowell

Design & Front End Development

Based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Sr. Product Designer at GuideTime

With 15 years of experience designing and developing experiences that encourage meaningful relationships between product and user.

Hey, I’m Ian! I’m a multifaceted designer + developer living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In my current role at GuideTime, I am responsible for all things “design” and assisting with front-end development.

From agencies to fast-paced tech startups and process heavy corporate environments, my goal has always been to simplify, clarify and beautify projects I am involved with. My passion for smart, intuitive design that “gets out of the way” is never ending and I constantly aim to push myself beyond my limits.

When not absorbed in my latest project, I’m usually found disc golfing, exploring the world around me or hanging out with my amazing 10-year old daughter.
