Lead Product Designer & Front-End Developer

Led a mobile app redesign. I worked with our support and sales teams to find out why our clients love our platform, and where we could improve their experience.

After completing several rounds of discovery and research, I led the design process to narrow down our journey map. Once we had a good idea of the direction we were heading in, I moved on to the prototype stage to test out our new version with customers. Once the product design was completed, I built the front­-end for our cross-platform mobile web app. This included a mobile-­first CSS framework, as well as a style guide to help document all the different UI patterns in our app.

Once we launched the new mobile app, we started our redesign project for our content manager. We went through a similar process as the event app redesign, but focusing on creating a new platform that would make it easier to integrate all of our products together. After a lot of research, user interviews and meetings we agreed on a direction to head towards. I built and deployed a design system in Meteor.js to quickly prototype different reusable UI patterns and templates that could be used in the new content manager.
