Liaison Creative + Marketing

Contracting through Liaison Creative + Marketing, I was tasked to provide UX/UI services to NXP Semiconductors in order to develop an internal management tool. Through a rigorous process of user research, wireframing, and coordinating with the development team, I provided a complete UX solution. Unfortunately, the project was unable to proceed due to development costs.

At the conclusion of that project, I was asked to stay on board to assist in converting their then static website into a new CMS which required an almost complete re-design in order to provide a fully responsive and updated web experience. My role was to develop a pattern library using HTML/CSS/JavaScript in alignment with NXP's global brand guidelines. Through this and subsequent successful projects, I was asked to join the NXP team as a full-time employee.
