Hi, I’m Drew Bridewell

Product Designer, UX Coach, UX Host

I’m on a mission to help people develop and grow in a positive, strategic, life-enriching way.

I love building new experiences and refining old ones. There’s something beautiful about a design transformation, but there’s also the challenging side of it. Whether it’s your first project or 50th, there is something to be learned.

When it’s all said and done, and the project has been completed, How do you learn from it? How do you live through it? How do you plan for your growth vs just letting it control you? How do you turn a win, or failure into an accelerating insight? Both in a product, a project, and in your personal life? These are the things I’ve reflected throughout my daily rituals. From working at growth companies like Facebook, LinkedIn, InVision, Lynda.com, and connecting with thousands of designers through online training, and design transformation consulting.

I want to share Next Level UX Coaching and Training. With a focus on User Experience Design, Next Level UX is all about bringing a personalized design and career transformation to your doorstep. I’m a big fan of intentional planning. Next Level UX was built to deliver a strategic, structured, 1:1 framework that delivers results. You’ll walk out of your sessions charged and ready to tackle your next big objective.

Life and projects can get complex, and Next Level UX was designed to support you with tactics, practices, and calculated plans to help you rise to your next level. I’m excited to help you get to your next level!

“I’m excited that you’re here. It’s an exciting time to be a designer. I’m here to empower, and help you create more impact, and achieve your goals.”

If you are anything like me, I know you want to reach your next level of design excellence. You want to raise the bar of what you do and how you do it. You want to put in the effort, create new routines, and see results faster. This program was built to guide you on your path to the next level of design clarity, intentionality, and purpose so you can lead an enriched design career full of insights, experiences, and impactful progress.
 

My Story? I’ve invested my entire career into product design and education, from advising and designing for startups to developing custom-tailored high impact workshops. I’ve built and redesigned design systems. I also was the lead designer on the first-ever Lynda.com responsive learning platform redesign.

My most recent work has been focused on career development and performance experiences. My mission is to help elevate designers who are committed to self-mastery and personal development. This program is focused on empowering, enriching, and supporting you as you grow into your next level.

Drew-and-jude

A few things that I’m passionate about sharing with you.

1. What are the influential patterns in a designer’s life that lead to more successful outcomes while sustaining those patterns consistently over time?

2. For those designers that get to this level, why do some thrive and others dread their journey?

3. What are the new rituals, resources, and modern-day tools to help you practice in this evolving market?

4. A guide to design productivity, and clarity.

More History

My career has taken me on a quest to follow my heart, my ambition, and pursuit of balance, fulfillment, and intentionality.

I want to pursue each of these in the way I flow through the day, contribute to my family, and to the missions I am on.

I want to be bold with my ambitions and do it a respectful, honest way.

I’ve been fortunate to have spent my career working in a diverse set of problem spaces and technologies. Linkedin, Nicusa, Lynda.com, InVision, Facebook, CrossCap.

Through each of these experiences, and my work at InVision, I’ve studied over 150 companies’ design and behavioral patterns, rituals, and challenges. As I observed teams from Google, Amazon, Facebook and Microsoft, I’ve realized we all share very common challenges around user experience design and we all have unique ways of solving those problems.

My goal for this program is to share the knowledge, patterns, rituals, and a holistic approach to how you can develop and accelerate your career as a designer. It’s a way for you to set up a deliberate and intentional mindset when you show up as a designer.
