Wade Meredith
A designer who can code in Kansas City. Building stuff for humans since 2006.



Wade Meredith is a customer experience designer in Kansas City


As a compulsive creator and lifelong autodidact, I have always been able to empower myself using knowledge and technology. I’ve spent most of my career helping others empower themselves by making things that are intuitive, engaging, and accessible. With over a decade of experience working across all facets of software (and print) design, marketing, and production … I am a true generalist that can own problems from beginning to end.

Whether visual design, products, systems, or teams; I have a proven track record of building stuff that works. Time and time again, this has allowed me to effectively apply the incredible force multipliers of thoughtful design and powerful technology. Leading to lower long-term cost of ownership for creative and software solutions, teams that provide lasting value to their peers, customer experience as a competitive advantage, and repeatable successes. 


Wade is someone that I trust completely. His credibility allows him to influence others and develop projects further. He has a certain sensitivity to the user experience, along with a strong feel for aesthetics. He is known for producing thoughtful results, while working well under pressure.
