I’m a design leader with technical chops and a zest for product strategy. 

Hands-on design director collaborating with co-founders and leadership to define product vision, and I work with teams to bring that vision to life.

As the first design leader at Robin, I formed the Design function, grew the (distributed) design team from 2 to 8 members and am responsible for the user experience across the entire platform.

I specialize in:

Designing a product requires imagination, experimentation, and persistence. Creating and refining product vision through designing, pitching, and prototyping is what I love.

If you're looking to create a new product, help improve an existing experience, or create vision/board decks – reach out. I'd love to work together.

Looking for work?

Working to organize case studies. See how I approached building an indoor map platform. I can provide more samples upon request!

I'll occasionally post work to Dribbble.

A little about me

My name is Ryan Coughlin. I grew up in a small coastal town in southern Maine. When I'm not working, you can find me on the water fishing, tying flies, shooting photos, and outdoors with my dog, Maicy.
