My High-Level Design Process
Each project and team may operate a tad bit differently. It's essential to collaborate and create a well-rounded working agreement. With remote work becoming a norm, it's crucial to talk about how this impacts individual work, process, and collaboration throughout the design & development process.
The Power of Design Systems
I specialize in creating & managing pixel-perfect design systems built in Sketch & Figma.
Workflow was designed independently from Widen’s suite of applications. Resulting in a very unique look-and-feel that didnt meet Widen’s expectations.
I led the Widen Design System project, and after 3 months of highly collaborative design workshops we had a Widen brand UI based on Material UI.
