Kevin's Story

I developed a new design system and redesigned the user interface and user experience of the mobile and web apps for the OZÉ platform. Throughout the process, also conducted user studies and interviews with OZÉ customers.

I developed a design system to modernize and unify the brand experience across the mobile and web platforms for business coaching Android app. Throughout the process, I met users and conducted field research to better understand their stories, challenges, and ways in which we could help support their businesses. Outside of the office, I explored some of the most breathtaking parts of Ghana on weekend trips, gave some guest lectures on web development with the GSL team, and met incredible people with whom I'll stay connected with for the rest of my life.

In my most exhilarating summer to date, I had the chance to intern at OZÉ, a platform for local small business owners to grow their ventures, and work on redesigning the web and mobile apps.
