User Research, UX/UI, Documentation, Adoption, Contribution, Process
Transformed the CNN Design System initiative to align with the company’s new business goals. Collaborated with a small focused group to establish a vision and roadmap for the future of CNN’s design system. Piloted the creation of design assets, authored component documentation, designed and tested a website repository, created the roadmap, circulated internal communications and newsletters, operated design system office hours and Slack channels, and completed regular research and user testing with internal users.
Onboarded and educated new users, shared up-to-date guidance and specifications rooted in the design system libraries, revised components where required, executed UAT, and worked closely with QA and the engineering teams to ensure that the finalized templates aligned with and brought improved parity to the CNN Design System.
