Upwork is a global online work platform where over
4 million businesses and over 9 million independent professionals connect and collaborate remotely. As Head of our design systems team, I'm responsible for leading a range of design initiatives including UX/UI, pattern development, visual design, typography, icon library development and product branding. During the company's rebranding from Odesk to Upwork in 2015, I lead a redesign of the product's design language to align with the brand's new look. This included new typography, color, custom icon library, components, photography and illustration style. I work regularly with internal stakeholders, UX designers, developers and other visual designers from around the world to develop the next-generation of Upwork's platform.
