As a Designer on the Citi Retail Service account's Servicing team I primarily focused on maintaining, extending, and applying our white label visual design language and design patterns across the 30+ Citi Bank Financial Partner brand portals comprising the Retail Services platform.It was quite the exercise in maintaining and extending the design language component of a flexible design system across multiple sub systems and service touchpoints.

I was fortunate enough to initiate and take part in an extended Product Design internship at Mass Relevance on the Viz Biz cohort of their Consumer Experience Team.I was a part of a small team comprised of the Customer Experience Lead, a Project Manager, three Full Stack Developers, and a Product Designer.The focus of my role shifted between UX Design, UI Design, Visual Design, Data Design and in-browser Prototyping on a project by project basis as our cohort worked to conceptualize and productize means of visualizing social media content.Post Spredfast and Mass Relevance merger, I stayed on for a few months while I finished up my Capstone Creative Experiment.
