Enabling product teams to ship consistent experiences everywhere, fast.
After a decade of building interfaces to scale for startups, banking rewards programs and large organizations - I've honed the skills to design & build design systems for organizations of any size.
I combine a thoroughly planned out design process with modern technology to deliver bespoke design systems that will help you offer a consistent experience across all of your interfaces and help your design & engineering teams deliver new features, apps and sites much faster.

What is a design system?
a Design system is a formal way of documenting solutions to common design problems. Design systems are a universal resource to align best practices, describe the elements of good designs, and most importantly, provide a repository so that other people can easily reuse these solutions. Why invent the wheel when a perfectly good one already exists?
Modern product teams rely on design systems to quickly get new designers & engineers up to speed on brand nuances, capture collective wisdom across time and people, provide teams with a common language, eliminate wasted time spent on “double work,” and ensure the end user gets a predictable experience no matter the medium or designer/engineer.
How do you know when it's time for a design system?
If you're a fast-growing startup with a growing team and multiple interfaces or large organization with disjointed legacy interfaces, it's a good time to consider a design system.
The process of introducing a design system
Many teams start out with an off the shelf UI framework or design and extend upon it without thinking of it as a system. Teams then quickly learn that they've outgrown this way of shipping and maintaining interfaces and need to introduce a new one. a Design system is more than the sum of its parts, it's a culture shift that requires a new approach.
