Hi there, I'm Cameron and I'm a Product Designer in San Francisco. Below is a sampling of my work for different companies, with a bit about me at the end. If you'd just like to get in touch, feel free to use one of the links below.
To give the group page more identity, I designed a docking group header that takes on full color branding as it shrinks to give users a sense of place as they read. The header also includes an unread messages counter that decrements as the user reads those messages, helping users into a workflow through their priority content.
Yammer was also perceived by users to be slow in delivering new and relevant content. Working with a UX designer, I designed the visuals and animation for a feature that notifies users when there's new content in one of their groups. The social recognition factor, combined with a pleasing but subtle animation, helped increase engagement with groups and with Yammer overall.
In addition to working on groups, I contributed to a larger visual and interaction redesign by proposing and advocating for a cleanup project to help reduce clutter in the product.
The former EP homepage showcased a selection of quality stories shared by users, but a lot of maintenance was required to keep it fresh. We wanted a cleaner, more immersive homepage that emphasized search but still gave users an impression of what content lay beyond the landing page.
I also took on some of the first qualitative user research the company had ever done, to help inform EP's branding and marketing overhaul. I surveyed 275+ users at various engagement levels and created a set of user personas based on my findings.
I've started writing as a way to organize my thoughts around my process and to share my working experiences with other designers. My first stab:
I also love the constant influx of new tools, patterns and ideas there are to absorb and use to inform my work. My current obsession is learning how to perfect my prototyping of animations and transitions using code.
Prior to working in product design I helped found two nonprofits and worked as a community muralist. I still volunteer doing design work and light front-end development for NGOs, and I'm always looking for opportunities to help out a worthy cause in my free time.
