Jerome Valdez


Jerome’s role as Head of Design means that today he will find ways to make the Cova client experience better than it was yesterday. He has been in user experience design for over 20 years. Some of his clients have included Lululemon, Nike, A&E Networks, Intuit, and many more. He’s managed teams of designers, developers, and other managers. He has even been a Product Manager at iQmetrix on a few of their applications.

As a side project, Jerome spent 10 years as an instructor at Capilano University’s Bachelor of Design program. He always used to tell students that the job of a User Experience Designer is to simply ‘suck less’.

When he’s not in front of a keyboard, he can be found spending time with his wife and daughters. Otherwise he can be found riding his road bike, or his gravel bike, or his mountain bike, or anything else with two wheels.
