Lead UX Designer
Web Design System 2.0
Improved usability, productivity, & deployed a cohesive experience across both platform products.
MobileIron's two major platform products MobileIron Cloud and MobileIron Access was growing rapidly with a focus on shipping new features. Soon the customer complaints surfaced about usability issues and inconsistencies in the user experience as well as the UI components.
Uncovering the actual problems
Remote teams working in silos
No dedicated team maintaining and updating UI component
No clear guidance on common components behavior
Developers writing in-line CSS
Designers making new components for already existing components
I started meeting with engineering leads and came across a newly funded project that was unifying the backend services for both the platform products. I took this opportunity to pitch the idea of building a design system for the front end components. Soon we had 2 developers made available.

Hi-Fi Wizard Component Flow
Launched the MobileIron Web Design System 2.0 in the company All Hands meeting to 400+ employees.
We leveraged Invision's Design System Manager tool, reducing development efforts to maintain a website
With a standardized style guide, interactive components, and an easy to deploy codebase our ideation to product release turnaround time has decreased immensely.
Designers can use a component library in Sketch, using Craft, to quickly iterate on designs.
Developers can easily deploy a design that is given to them by copy/pasting from the DSM or by using defined element classes.
Product managers can explore ideas on their own and sales engineers can propose solutions to help close deals all with the DSM
This is a win across the board and our company is excited to use it moving forward with more designers actively contributing to the evolving components library.
