The Story

Beehive app
Beehive app

I was recruited by fellow former Salesforce employees who worked with me to join them at Amazon. They wanted me to recreate the success of the Salesforce Lightning Design System. In a contract-turned-full-time engagement, I worked closely with product designers by providing design direction for visuals and interactions. I also worked with engineers to ensure their CSS was to specifications as well as guidance on accessibility.

My role also included some design operations as well, including provisioning access to the design tools used on the team, project management, and providing education and workshops opportunities.

During my time there, I built a React-based style guide with components and documentation for both the design and engineering organizations to use.
