General Assembly

Working at GA, I was the primary visual designer on the product team. This role was focused mainly on visual design with a secondary focus in UX design, testing, and prototyping. Over my time at GA I worked primarily to increase the brand presence on the online platform and to improve the visual design and experience of navigational elements, instructional elements, and transitional designs. Throughout this process I managed photoshoots to create photography assets, worked closely with developers to create prototypes, and worked with the UX designers to concept new ideas.
