Work with product owners, writers, and developers to create “next generation” digital experiences through out the Chase digital banking products.

As a UX Design lead I have been at the forefront of many of the  redesigns for the visual patterns associated with the tools used within Payments, Investments and our public module system.

As an Illustrator, I work with leadership to conceptualize early ideas being pitched to executives. We cycle between storyboards and illustrations to help augment the written descriptions, and help to stimulate imagination of the possibilities of the pitched product.

This was an amazing team.  We continually innovated new ideas for mobile content that shipped to both international and domestic markets.   The content was mainly animated GIF and mobile game interfaces created to help support upcoming Disney/Pixar marking campaigns.  We also created custom weekly-animated episodic cartoons using many of the character of in the Disney family.
