Role

Experience Designer

One of my first projects when joining Yahoo was the revamp of the Maps product. With a new map provider, the goal was to modernize their existing map product to better compete with the offering from Google. This project required working closely with the project manager to define the huge number of use cases and edge cases. Because of the detailed workflow, the use cases contained lots of complex flows with many pivots. After defining the workflows, I defined the visual style to be used in the product and worked with the larger design team to ensure brand consistency. Once the visual design and application experience are approved, I worked closely with the engineering team to ensure the needed visual assets were delivered and launched product accurately reflected the mocks.
