Product Designer (Design Systems)

2019 - 2020
Royal Caribbean Cruises
  • Worked as part of the design systems team and audited the current usage of specific components like notifications, cards and buttons. The conclusions from the audits helped inform the systems documentation.
  • Led an initiative to reimagine the use of typography as a foundation of the system. Using a process of research, design, and testing, I proposed a predictable scale as a solution. This standardized typography across multiple products and platforms.
  • Solved the pain point of design QA by researching and testing new methods for how design and development might improve communication. This project helped launch a new internal system for design QA.
  • Held a series of UX workshops with the company stakeholders and spearheaded a project with the goal of defining the company's design values. This helped solidify the foundation of the system and drive design decisions.
  • Designed a browsable guide of Royal Caribbean's visual language. The first version was released in InVision, the second version in Webflow. The project was the first attempt at designing a custom design system platform.
