My summer at Google

In 2016, I had the chance to work with the Google Play team as a UX Design Intern for the Play Store. With the support of my team, I researched and designed features for My Apps & Games. Additionally, I assisted in UX research, helping craft surveys and usability studies. While I cannot display samples of my process, I can tell you about how I spent my summer at Google.

What I learned

This was the first time I got to design for Android and really understand Google's Material Design. Being a part of a Google's design process was truly an enriching experience. Spending my summer working alongside engineers, user researchers, visual designers, and product managers has really shaped my own experience as a designer.
