Aaron Gilmore, Designer and Developer

Aaron Gilmore

I'm an independent designer and developer based in Ireland, and a student of Interactive Design at the University of Ulster. I previously worked as a Product Design Intern for Brewbot.

I'm primarily a designer—but I believe that role comes with the responsibilty of understanding how to build the products I design.

I'm available for freelance work. If you want to discuss a project, you can email me at aaron@aarongilmore.com or tweet me @aarondgilmore. If you want to know more about me, please view my résumé.


Brewbot · Product Design Intern

2013 - 2014


Brewbot uses sensor technology to track and automate the brewing process. Simply follow the instructions in the app, add the ingredients when prompted and, hey presto, you can call yourself a brewer.

In 2014, Brewbot was accepted into the Techstars program in Austin, TX. It has been featured on Techcrunch, Mashable, Fast Company, and Offscreen.


  • “Idea Factories”

  • Ideas are hard. Like, having to actually come up with something is hard. Usually ideas come out of nowhere, at random times; in the shower, while out running, or after one too many beers.

  • Being More Productive

  • Ever since breaking out of the routine of working for a company I’ve becoming increasingly bad at managing time.

  • Moving on from Brewbot

  • It's been an amazing year working with Brewbot as a Product Design Intern, but it's time for me to move on. Over the past year I've had the chance to work on an amazing product with a very talented group of people. It's been a wonderful experience that I'm eternally grateful for.

  • Brewing Coffee

  • I started drinking coffee at a very young age but It wasn't until last year that my interest in coffee really started to grow. The level of complexity in such a simple drink became fascinating to me and I wanted to learn a lot more about it.
