Working at Neyber has been a pivotal part of my career, my journey into UI Design started here. I work on a whole array of projects ranging from facilitating the rebrand of Neyber to redesigning their website. I am responsible for designing and continually developing Neyber's first functioning UI Kit using Brad Frost's Atomic Design Methodology.
I work with UX Designers, Product Strategist, Product Owners, and Tech teams (offsite & onsite) to formulate workstreams for parallel projects. We hold workshops, meetings, and video calls to progress the projects over the line using weekly sprints in an agile work environment. I react 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 new Neyber UI Kit (NUK). With the support of Neyber I was able to take on my own personal project to completely redesign the NUK. During this process of development, I massively improved my knowledge and technical skills in Sketch through studying tutorials on youtube and reading countless articles on "Design Systems".
I've listed a few below;
Neyber is now armed with a cohesive UI Kit 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 has been achieved, the NUK is now being developed and coded to allow the tech team to have one centralised resource. By creating consistency, both the design and tech teams will be able to work alongside one another using the NUK as their one source of truth.
