Helping a networking startup envision new features and functionality.

Firsthand Desktop and Mobile Sites

Firsthand (formerly known as Evisors) is a networking and mentoring platform for students and alumni, helping form relationships to create professional opportunities. Not only does the platform allow advisors and advisees to connect with each other, it also allows school administrators to groom and facilitate these connections. Working closely with the CEO and the engineers, my task was to take their new style guide and extend it to the platform’s newer and more complex features and functionality. The project is ongoing, but here are a few work samples.
