Product Designer // Hand letterer // Circus performer
As the first designer on board at TaskEasy, I created the aesthetic and brand that carried throughout the product and marketing. I designed & maintained web pages, internal tools, mobile apps and marketing campaigns. As the senior UX / UI Designer I directed the aesthetic voice of the company, and managed a team of designers.
As Director of UX/UI design, I worked to bring CaseWorthy's software up to date with the current design standards and usability that’s expected of a current top tech company. With user behavior and end user experience in mind, I rethought workflows and interfaces for a better experience throughout the product. I managed a team of developers to ensure that the design vision is applied correctly, and also served as the lead marketing & brand designer for the company.
As the graphic designer for this SAAS startup in it’s beginning stages, I took the helm to create the product’s visuals in a way that would appeal to prospective customers, enterprise clients as well as seed fund investors. I specialized in the user experience and interface within the web app, as well as marketing and transactional emails to our beta users.
As the Senior Designer and Photographer for Lilac Clothing, I created a brand identity that would appeal to women of all shapes and sizes. I created all digital advertising (social media and ads) e-commerce websites for each clothing division, product catalogs each season, shot lifestyle and product photography, created clothing labels and tags, and created trade show booths and marketing material.

QUESTION: What does a truly effective employee retention and recognition intranet really look like? What can a company do to retain top-talent employees in the millennial generation, and help them love their job?
BRAINSTORM KICKOFF PLAN:
Design an intranet that employees and managers can access to award points to employees or coworkers, redeem points at an online store, and write/receive notes of appreciation and feedback.
Employees can search for others in an easy to use database, with filters and sort options for department, job title, and name.
Employees are allotted a certain number of "points" each month to award to their coworkers to recognize them for efforts and contributions to the team. Managers receive additional points to award to their team members (depending on how many people report to each manager.)
Gamify good work! Employees earn badges for a variety of achievements. Example: Badges and awards for receiving the most points from fellow team members. Badges for total points earned. Etc. Employee dashboard and profile page will display badges earned, and ones not yet earned.
Intranet includes a store where employees can redeem points for gift cards, experiences, prizes, or even charitable causes.
Simple clean look and feel, bright pops of color and company branding.
My love of type and layout has translated into a full-fledged obsession with handlettering. Much of my work is done in pen/ink, but my latest works are done digitally using Procreate and Apple Pencil. Handlettering commissions are available… just drop me a line.
