I’m responsible for:

  • Brand Identity System
  • Wireframing
  • Release Videos / Announcements
  • Continually scaling the graphic system of ZEIT, Next.js and Hyper — among others

  • Recruiting and hiring for the design team

UI Designer at Auth0

My first task was to design Sharelock.io (Web / Android App that allows you to share data easily and securely). After releasing the app and its website, I had the opportunity to re-design many important front-facing pages for the company (About, Why Auth0?, Jobs and marketing pages Passwordless, AWS Reinvent and Guardian, to name a few).

My final responsibility at Auth0 was to lead the project Guardian as a Product Designer, giving me full creative control over the experience, from the blueprints to the final polished app.

I was responsible for:

  • Creating Blueprints
  • User Experience Design
  • User Interface Design
  • Product Design
  • Marketing Design
