UX Design, UI Design, Art Direction, Customer Experience Design, Visual Design, Copywriting, Research, & Strategy
Brainstorming and developing new business and user experience concepts for web, mobile and point of sale while
bringing in social media touch-points to all the channels. Keeping the entire experience (UX, UI, IA, marketing, strategy, design) fluid and inline with brand standards was key to our success. Research in the financial space played a huge role in creation of these pieces. I did high fidelity design on a few pieces but since I had design support handed off medium fidelity work to another fantastic designer for help. Spending more time on strategy, research and UX / UI with the team lead as my partner was a better use of my time based on our resources. Working in a space that combines UX, visual
design and copywriting in the same documents is a common way I work.
