About

I am Andrew Wandiga, a Product Designer & Web Developer focused on crafting beautiful websites, UIs and products.

Driven by a curiosity about other fields outside design, I push to integrate insights learned from software development, business, psychology, and more and into my work.

With the power and possibilities of no-code web development, I also build premium, custom landing pages and websites using Framer.

I am interested in collaborating with vision-driven startups and founders to develop their websites and product UIs.
