Just days after Uber showcased its new look, the company’s head of design and brand Andrew Crow has announced his exit.
The announcement of his departure was made on a blogpost on Medium. In the blogpost he says he is using the company’s “recent successes as a chance to take time off to rest, reflect, and recharge” and is making the decision to be there for his family.
“When I joined Uber in 2014, I was excited about the challenge — build an amazing design team that would impact the world in a positive way. As a team, we would find great talent, push for the best quality design, and create a culture of inspiration, exploration, and togetherness,” he said.
He also added that he is leaving behind an “amazing team who works to create great experiences, shaping the way people and things move through the world.”
Meanwhile, according to his LinkedIn, prior to Uber, Brow was the global director, brand & design for GE and collaborated with GE’s businesses to set and execute on a vision for great brand experiences.
He leans on over 25 years of experience in visual, interaction, and product design for a deep perspective on creating meaningful product experiences for people. Prior to GE, Andrew was VP of mobile and experience at Razorfish, and a Lead Experience Designer for Adaptive Path.
