My Role in Product Design

The Ideas Studio application is a collaborative tool furthering the discourse on ethics and technology by encouraging faster networking and data-sharing.

As a UX Writer, I write microcopy such as navigational components, call-to-action buttons, notifications, and transactional emails. To solidify the company’s brand voice I’ve also created a style guide informing UI and UX decision-making. In addition, I lead marketing efforts, composing a number of deliverables such as a business plan, emails, and media mentions to attract potential users and investors.
