I’ve been working in the tech start-up world in San Francisco and New York for six years (and counting!). Currently, I’m a Product Designer at MongoDB. I aim to make every experience with a company’s brand, website, and product delightful. I believe a users-first approach isn’t just backed by opinion, but by diligent user research, testing, iterative design, and constantly asking if it’s relatable, fun, and useful.
I was tasked to build the design processes on several products under the MongoDB University umbrella, including their online-learning application and their documentation websites. For this casestudy, I’ll focus on designing MongoDB University’s online-learning application design system and process.
MongoDB's Documentation Website receives tens of thousands of visitors. On a weekly basis, we receive edits on documentation. It's the main point of reference for developers building applications with MongoDB.
With a focus on midcentury modern design, Piston's brand was unlike any other tech company in Silicon Valley. Instead of hoodies, they wore bow ties. Instead of a backpack, their onboarding swag was a Goorin Brother's hat.

MongoDB World is an annual user conference and is by far their largest community event with thousands of attendees from around the world. This was my second year planning the conference's brand designs system.
