Hey.

I'm Tim Cothran, currently working as the Digital Experience Design Lead for Bremer Bank.

Throughout my career I've become well versed in as many areas of design as possible, which has made me particularly effective as an in-house creative director and product design lead, capable of building and executing almost all of a company's creative needs with little to no outsourcing.

My skills and experience include packaging, branding and identity, environmental design, photography and videography, marketing campaigns and collateral, UX/UI, product design, and site design and implementation.

DIGITAL EXPERIENCE DESIGN LEAD

In March 2019, I joined the fledgling Digital Strategy Team at Bremer to transition their apps from a stale, whitelabeled solution to fully owned native mobile and web experiences.

CREATIVE DIRECTOR

In November 2016, Aftercode began development on Rambl, an AI-powered calling platform for inside sales teams, which officially launched in May 2018.

CREATIVE DIRECTOR

In February 2016, I joined Aftercode as the first employee and sole designer with two of the former co-founders of Code42, and prepared to develop an AI-powered social app.

CREATIVE DIRECTOR

From January 2010 to November 2015, I built and led a 14-person in-house creative team, during which time Code42 grew from 13 to 500+ people and $186M in funding.

CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Before Code42 transitioned to a master brand architecture, my focus was primarily on branding their well-known consumer backup product, CrashPlan.

FREELANCE BRANDING / WEBSITE / UI

Inkit needed a quick site and brand refresh to improve their appearance during their search for funding.

I have a variety of hobbies that occupy my time – whenever I actually have time, that is.

ABOUT ME

I've worked in 2-person agencies and 2,500-person enterprises. I've been the 1,000th person to join and work through the difficulties of a major M&A rebrand. I've also witnessed the challenges of joining at 13 and growing to 500 in less than 4 years. And recently I've gained immense insights from starting from scratch as the first employee, developing a value proposition, identifying product/market fit, and iterating over and over...and over...on messaging and product features. I've worked for clients in healthcare, insurance, medical technology, telecom, SaaS, retail, and non-profit sectors.
