Design systems
I joined the WeTransfer Portals team before launch. During this early phase, I collaborated with Product Designers and Project Managers to research and identify which features would be the most valuable for our early customers. My role for Portals ranges from developing new UI/UX patterns to creating user flows for collaborative features. Since our strategy was to build fast on top of existing features and iterate based on learnings, creating scalable systems was essential to designing features for Portals.
