  • Translate complex product requirements into easy and intuitive user flows.
  • Collaboratively create responsive interfaces that inspire and engage customers.
  • Identify overarching interaction patterns and design holistically to ensure a consistent user experience across the full customer journey.
  • Break a long-term user experience vision down into concrete steps for agile development.
