Rohan Walsh

Creative Director
when interviewed in
March 2018

Rohan Walsh is the Creative Director at TradeGecko. Based in Singapore, the young startup creates inventory and order management software. Wearing many hats in his position is something Rohan is more than used to. On top of his coding and design responsibilities, he takes on marketing responsibilities when necessary.

In our super relaxed interview, we talked about his home country South Africa, the SG design scene, design highs, why being in tech is a valuable career choice, designing with code, survival instincts, tech impact, AR/VR design, college education, web design evolution and what he wished he would have learned earlier in life.

“Being able to trust and respect each other enough, knowing that the other partners in the startup are able to take care of their arm of the business, so that you can focus on yours, is just incredibly crucial.”
