Capital One Labs, June 2014–Present
At Capital One Labs I designed products to help peole better understand, engage with, and use their money. I led design through exploratory research, strategy, interaction design, prototyping, and production.
Over the course of a project I developed research methods to facilatate tough conversations with people about their money, then synthesized learnings into insights and frameworks to guide design. I led my teams through ideation and service design activities to define solutions, and communicated those concepts to leadership and stakeholders. During the design phase I created wireframes, mock-ups, and prototypes to test with users. Finally, I worked with engineering teams and business partners to bring products to pilot.
