eLocal | Designer/Developer | 2011-2015

I started out with eLocal as a college intern, designing and illustrating infographics. My role quickly grew into a full-time web design job and eventually expanded into UX design, data analysis, and front-end development. Along the way, I improved conversion rates on key portions of eLocal's site, such as a 22% decrease in page abandonment from a single submission form revision. My last project for eLocal was leading a comprehensive rebranding effort.

I produced a diverse range of products, including internal presentations, logos, invitations, menus, infographics, and illustrations. My clients included Visa, FirstJob.com, and Johnson & Johnson.
