In order to appeal to a broader audience, Jetsetter decided to expand their inventory of hotels to feature properties at lower price points for the value conscious consumer. In addition, the request was to revamp the design of the homepage. There were multiple stakeholders from different departments so my approach was to first get alignment on the overall content and hierarchy of the new homepage by designing a wireframe. The goal of the new design was to create more of an emotional connection with the user via beautiful product photography and content. I achieved this by designing a responsive page that allows the images to scale according to the browser for a more immersive customer experience. The styles are also more modern and inviting.
The design generated a 12% lift in conversion and 35% increase in user engagement.
I was tasked with designing the first IOS app for Airfarewatchdog and was responsible for the overall user experience of the app as well as the look and feel. I partnered with the product team to whiteboard the different scenarios and user flows (sorry, I don't have this!).

The results after we launched exceeded expectations. Featured searches increased by 35% and rev per visit increased 30% compared to mobile web.
Zipcar contracted me to design their 2016 B2B white paper on "The 5 Habits of Happier, More Productive Workplaces." The message relays they are experts on workplace productivity and provides advice and statistics on how to maintain a productive workplace for all ages. The goal for was to create a design that is more engaging and visually appealing than your typical content heavy white paper. I worked closely with the content writer and marketing team to come up with a cohesive theme and interpret the analysis to create infographics. I introduced a color coding system for each section that enabled Zipcar to utilize more of their color palate as well as help organize the sections. The white paper ended up being 27 pages. Here I am displaying a few sections to demonstrate the visual language and infographics I designed for the sections.

Clover Listings, a First Data product, was created to help merchants better manage their online presence. We partnered with Yext to offer merchants the ability to update their business information once, and publish it to over 70 third party sites such as Google, Yelp, Facebook and more. In addition, business owners can manage all their reviews in one place and access analytics showing customer trends and insights. I worked closely with the Yext team to learn from their best practices via testing and obtain an understanding of all their analytics and data. Working closely with the product team, we determined the flow of the entire product, discerned which data points would be most valuable for these merchants and designed a clean and intuitive experience.

I was tasked with designing an intuitive and clean sign up flow so merchants could take advantage of this offer and quickly convert.

I worked closely with the First Data funding team in Atlanta to understand business objectives and offered solutions to make the process as simple as possible, by reducing points of friction or unnecessary information that might lead to user fall off. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive and the merchants were able to sign up with little to no calls to the help center.
I was contracted by Liberty Mutual to redesign their Broker Manual as they needed to update their content and wanted a more modern look. The Manual is comprised of 40 pages that provides essential information for Brokers such as Underwriting Guidelines, Required Documents, Marketing materials, Contact Information and more. The project took over 6 months and is available for download on their website as well as print form. I've included a few sample pages here.

I also designed the merchant admin pages so they can add online ordering to their restaurant theme and setup their menus.
Liberty Mutual wanted to take a 4 page brochure and turn it into a 2 page infographic for a more engaging experience. I worked directly with the editorial team to condense the content and select areas that could be communicated visually. In addition, I determined the layout and hierarchy of the information based on their content goals. The result was well received by Liberty Mutual and their clients.
Clover Online is a product created for First Data merchants to easily setup an online website or store. The prior design was not very user friendly or intuitive and I was asked to lead the redesign efforts. I started by analyzing the data and merchant feedback as to why they were not completing the signup process. We learned the merchants were overwhelmed by all the options and order in which they forced to complete them. Instead of a prescribed checklist, I suggested having a more organic checklist, where merchants can choose what order they would like to set things up, with feedback loops once completed. The design editor was also cumbersome, and I created a new flow that enabled merchants to see their design changes in real time. The redesign was well received and many more merchants are completing their websites as a result.
JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International) wanted to combine their various chapter organizations into one responsive website. I was contracted by the agency 10up to work directly with JDRF to redesign their desktop and mobile experience.

I explored two approaches, one that elevated their look and feel at the time and the second was more of a departure. Another goal was to infuse the large community that TripAdvisor has into the design. Since TripAdvisor was able to use the Facebook API, my solution was to display the faces of the community from their Facebook profile photos as a background collage.
Hotel Watchdog was a new concept by Trip Advisor that provided hotel suggestions based on user search criteria including price, ratings and location. The objective was to create a small mobile site to test user interest in this product.

The testing was successful, which led to a broader desktop and mobile design of the product.

In addition to optimizing the product pages, Jetsetter also needed to redesign their mobile check out experience due to significant drop off at check out. The hypothesis was that the calendar and check out would perform better if we removed superfluous steps and designed cleaner more intuitive pages. I partnered with product to discern which features needed updating/improvement and designed separate optimized experiences for both iphone and tablet.
The result was a significant decrease in abandonment at check out and a 59% increase in conversion.
Airfarewatchdog is a fun quirky site that provides great unadvertised airfare deals. The design was extremely dated and I was able to convince the product team to redesign the site after I initiated a user testing session. We learned that users found the site very confusing and stale. I was tasked with creating a new fresh look that would invigorate the site and create a better user experience for the customer. I started out with wireframes to gain alignment on content and information hierarchy. My goals for the design was to keep the fun quirkiness of the brand, yet have it feel modern and relevant. I used illustration versus photography in order to maintain an approachable interface. I also cleaned up the product page and created more hierarchy and order so the information was more easily found.
This is still in progress, but represents some early stage exploration.

After extensive research and competitor analysis, I partnered with product to wireframe the flow of the site. We went through many iterations of the design and here is the latest design of the homepage. Lastly I came up with some fun banner concepts to communicate the money back message and intrigue users to try it out.
The design of SniqueAway was becoming dated and we decided to reinvigorate the brand and color palate. The goal was to design a unique look and feel that stood out against the competition. We wanted our brand to be more approachable and fun while others are more high end sleek.

I was contracted to create the user experience of the site starting with the homepage through product and check out. I also suggested creating an experience with a map so users can interact with it and learn about wines from different regions.
Lastly I was tasked with creating the mobile application experience to make finding and purchasing wines easier. Using the same recommendation engine, users are able to find recommended wines and reserve them for purchase at their local wine store. My goal was to make the UX as intuitive and easy as possible for the user.
