Lead brand and product designer
2013 - 2016 (about 3 years)
Designed the whole of the Ambition product from inception. Worked autonomously, to secure and guide the brand; managed any new designs, as they were pushed live. Worked closely...more with dev. team to conceptualize and design interaction product features, identities, and applications within specific deadlines and unique team constraints.
Worked primarily on the Fireplug App which targeted professionals who have a vested interest in keeping up with the most current news. Wireframes, user flow, user experience,...more and incremental product guidance.
I thrive when I can combine branding practices with digital user experiences. By helping mold the brand voice through user flows; designing then how a user interacts, and what they see, with branding in mind, I can help influence that "gut feeling"—and I love finding that balance.
