NOKIA : UX/UI

In 2015, I turned my back on industrial design and began work in UX/UI for Nokia’s IP/Optical networking sector. Despite having little training, I quickly learned how to think in digital space and to prototype network and service management apps for network operators and engineers through the vast experience of my incredible team.

 

MY ROLE:

  • Created comprehensive specs for animation, components, and apps using components of the Material Design System

  • Created large, complex apps that require specialized technical domain knowledge

  • Created animations to navigate through hierarchies and to enhance the user experience

  • Worked collaboratively in multidisciplinary teams of UX, visual designers, user researchers, front-end/back-end developers, QA teams, product line managers, documentation, and marketers

  • Lead review meetings

  • Expanded my team's knowledge base by regularly sharing relevant articles and creating best practice documents

  • Ensured we upheld our commitment to quality

  • Managed 2 interns for video and slide deck creation for pre-sales 

 
 

DESIGN EXCELLENCE

Our design team of 11 was dedicated to always delivering the highest quality product. We achieved this by leveraging the Material Design System, through extensive user testing, evangelizing our core principles and guidelines, following up on development builds, and delivering strong UX intent. I always ensured my work was clear, consistent, delivered on time, and that I was 100% accountable for all my projects.

I owned the design of conceptual apps, our core components, animations, and I managed a 2 interns. 

Because most of my work was internal, unreleased or conceptual, the only disclosable examples of my apps can be seen through marketing demos in the Nokia NSP Youtube channel:

 
 

DESIGN LEADERSHIP

I prioritized building strong relationships with other teams to shift our company’s culture towards UX adoption. Laying down a solid foundation for effective interdisciplinary teamwork through positive leadership, a supportive climate, respect, and avid communication is the only way to maximize productivity.

RESULTS

  • I helped shift the company from legacy to web applications by conceptualizing and actualizing over 40 components for 20 different apps, 4 promotional videos for SReXperts and Mobile World Congress, 10 transitional animations and microinteractions, and 1 proof of concept that paved the way for 2 new apps.

  • Our small team of designers helped give Nokia the momentum they needed to gain 4% sales growth by the end of Q4'17.
