Andrew Eddy, Graphic Designer, Entrepreneur, & Instructor
I am a graphic designer, entrepreneur, and lead instructor at the Academy X design school. I am passionate about working with startups and have launched several successful businesses. Learn how to design from my “jump right in” teaching style.
“I am a nerd. I love everything technology, and making the virtual world a more beautiful place is my passion.” -Andrew
I currently live in Atlanta, where I am the CEO of a security software company. I began designing mobile applications and websites in college. UX/UI design came so naturally that, I knew it was the career for me. I like to say I am a Economics major with a computer science addiction. I won the College of Charleston Entrepreneur of the Year award when I was a senior in college.
I have worked as a graphic designer for an array of different size companies from startups, all the way to fortune five hundred companies such as Coca-Cola.
I have experience designing logos, branding, UI design, UX research, rapid prototyping, and web development.
I have been a freelance web developer since 2009 and have contributed countless beautiful websites to the internet.
I have served as the creative director for an emerging financial technology startup.
I have served as a UI designer for a non profit, SPLASSH, a company that crowdsources projects about the way we consume information about water.
My motto is to teach by doing. In my courses, you will jump right into the subject and learn to design by actually designing. Recreating app designs and learning as you go is the best way to learn in my opinion.
My goal is to give my students the ability to change their career with the skills they learn in my classes.
