Working at Neyber has been a pivotal part of my career, my journey into UI/UX and Digital Product Design started here. I worked on a whole array of projects ranging from facilitating the rebrand of Neyber to redesigning their website. I was responsible for designing and developing Neyber's first UI style guide using Brad Frost's Atomic Design Methodology.
I worked with Designers, Product Strategist, Product Owners, and Tech teams (offsite & onsite) to formulate workstreams for parallel projects. We held workshops, meetings, and video calls to progress the projects over the line following a bi-weekly sprint process. I react and adapt to updates of requirements which can change daily due to shifts in business and/or product strategy.
A responsibility of mine is to ensure that the compliance & marketing team create a fine balance in the content. This means the copy provided will comply with GDPR and other regulations, whilst achieving a tone of voice suitable for our users.
I work with our Tech teams to hold daily stand-up sessions, product demos, and retrospectives. The feedback and action points I collate from those sessions are valuable in the completion of sprints and assigned story tickets using Jira.
Whilst leading the design function within the company, a year into my role, I became aware of the Atomic Design Methodology which led to the early development of the updated Neyber UI style guide. With the support of Neyber I was able to take this project on as a personal project. During this process of development, I massively improved my knowledge and technical skills in Sketch through trial and error, studying tutorials on youtube and reading countless articles on "Design Systems".
I've listed a few below;
Neyber now has a cohesive visual styleguid which is still in development. Not only has it syncronised the design team, it has also enabled other designers in my team to be able to pull the assets from it as a Sketch library. I am extremely proud of what I have achieved. By creating consistency, both the design and tech teams will be able to work alongside one another using the style guide as their one source of truth.
