Started from retail
Empowered customers with mobile apps to make physical and digital retail more seamless at Dynamite and Garage
As a Stylist, Sales Associate, and Cashier at Dynamite, I brought the problems inferred from customer pain-points in stores, to pitch and shape the product roadmap with a mobile-first approach. Jumped into product design by starting with a complete redesign of the mobile sites and then the team launched Dynamite & Garage's first iOS apps.
Design Systems on Facebook Ads
Interned as a Product Designer and made components, patterns, and guidance for product teams to collaborate. I learned about addressing inconsistencies, scaling documentation, and cross-platform collaboration with a shared language.
Let's go back to retail. And don't forget about the human element in design ✨
Recently, I surprised my former manager from Dynamite with a visit. He's now Flagship Store Manager at Michael Kors.
Manager: Cindy, I did a security and loss prevention presentation here and it reminded me of you. Remember, I was asking about our procedures and you were the only one that put your hand up and said “don’t forget about the human element in loss prevention!”
Me: I used to talk like that in 2014? Remember you taught me about KPIs?
Why working at Casalova felt like my first basketball practice
Fluffy snow, grey wool jacket, grey tims, let's go 😄Tears may be shed, so grab onto a teddy bear
The future of the book
• Art and design work together
• In-store and online experiences
• I bought an architecture photography book Three of a Kind, to discuss the images and incorporated some design work from Casalova, a real estate marketplace, in response to the book as a medium by defining ephemeral and lasting moments of the new era
