customer care Goal: Zero unanswered questions

User Testing for usability and validation at key steps in the design process.

After several iterations of design and flow, we performed usability and validation testing in the Intuit Research lab onsite to gather insights.

Key takeaways

  • Each consumer is an individual. Ultra personalized experiences are key to feeling good about our unique selves.

  • People expect to know what they want to know in an instant.

  • Consumers demand brands provide value in exchange for personal data



Project “One Intuit Initiative” Overview

Organizations with multiple product suites often face the challenge of keeping all branches of the products on brand with the overarching design guidelines. The One Intuit Initiative’s focus was to align TurboTax, Quickbooks, and Mint with the same UI patterns/functionality, and keep individual product style through font and color change.



Project #thewordshop

Working with Intuit’s talented content team, I created a short animation using kinetic typography to share on social media. The goal was raising awareness about the importance of proper user messaging in products.
