Optimized the team's process—improving speed and flexibility in the design phase (structure, symbols, reviews), and providing a clear input for the development phase (guide, specs, prototypes, & assets).
Initiated user research practice (direct bite-sized personal contact with customers through WhatsApp).
Made designs that will be published through the first 6 months of 2017.
