T. Rowe Price

User Experience Designer

As a UX Designer on the Trailblazer team, I have been working to transform the investor's digital experience and execute a new brand strategy.

My focus has been on modernizing a new investing experience for prospective clients with an emphasis on simplifying and improving the research process. We validated our design methodology with a company first zero-based design workshop and use continuous user research with investors to affirm our MVP.

Since starting I have worked with my team to implement a new user sign up experience, an improved investor landing page, a redesigned investment research tool, and an overhauled site-wide navigation.
