MY BREAD AND BUTTER
Creating and maintaining design systems is my jam. I love to create solid foundations for products and solve strategic problems through design systems. It's not easy, and that is exactly what I like about them.
With a background in visual design, I'm passionate about making not only designs that spark joy but also utilizing visual systems to provide a consistent and predictable UI which help users perform essential actions and ultimately improve user experience.
With my strong eye for design and deep understanding of design principles, I am able to effectively identify and analyze problems related to usability, accessibility, the overall UX, and inconsistencies in the UI of a product through UX audits. This allows me to provide actionable recommendations that enhance the overall experience of a product.
At the core of my design philosophy is the belief that digital products should be accessible to all. That's why I make sure to prioritize accessibility in every aspect of my work, from the earliest stages of research and design. By embracing accessibility, I am able to create truly inclusive and user-friendly products that benefit everyone. YAY!
As the Lead UI Designer, I designed over 300 screens for PATH's new-generation payment system, ensuring accessibility first, creating the site's visual language, style guide, UI library, and documentation for both customer and B2B sites.
The TAPP site enables over 3 million riders to pay subway and bus fares using debit cards, credit cards, and mobile devices.
Implementing Accessibility at Unqork
Accessibility | UX | Design Systems
As the sole Design System Designer, I've been dedicated to managing, maintaining, and evolving Unqork's DS to ensure its continued relevance and effectiveness. I've successfully designed, launched, and maintained numerous libraries, components, and patterns.
I have also championed a cohesive design approach, ensuring alignment, consistency, and a unified direction across the product's visual aesthetics, usability, and interactions to elevate Unqork user experience.
I've been at the forefront of pioneering accessibility at Unqork, leading initiatives to ensure WCAG + ADA 508 compliance through crucial modifications in the design system and scaling those accessibility improvements across the product.
This commitment to accessibility has not only fostered inclusivity and enriched the product's user experience but also involved educating designers and stakeholders about accessibility and its importance!
As the lead UX designer, I successfully re-designed the Foley website by conducting a comprehensive UX audit, competitor analyses, and stakeholder interviews. In my design strategy, I restructured the site architecture and user flows, creating responsive wireframes for both mobile and desktop.
The successful redesign achieved a modern, user-friendly, responsive, and accessible UI, increased user engagement, facilitated recruitment efforts, integrated CRM systems, and improved data analytics capabilities.
As a senior designer, I partnered with the Art Director to establish the complete visual identity, brand guidelines, and branding elements for the Charles Butt Foundation website, including logos, wireframes, prototypes, user flows, and micro-interactions. In addition to that, I led the UI strategy by developing the design system and its documentation.
This design system initiative had a profound impact on the organization, streamlining the design process, facilitating collaboration, and promoting a cohesive brand experience across the whole website.
