Motion for Design Systems:
One of my objectives this year was to be able to contribute more with the creative directors, to bring a technical perspective to creative projects for our CX platform. One major project was to create a set of motion design principles for the Design System. Exploring new technologies and techniques as well as troubleshoot issues that crop up.

Inside this project my duties have included:
  • Explore and catalog over 40 different web components to prototype motion interactions for.
  • Create a clear handoff document to facilitate the communication with developers (as an individual document and a Git issue templates).
  • Create micro interactions for navigation components.
  • Building data generators (sets of randomize catalogs of data) and make data visualization components with the same motion traits as the rest of the Design System.

Prototyping for Complex Web Application States:
The Northwestern Mutual Design team has been working on a variety of web applications to support the investment sales processes. One of this process is a health assessment application in the context of a web form.
