I've been employed at CI Investments since January, 2011.
As the Senior UX/Web Designer, I am responsible for UI and UX design and development of websites and other digital products. This includes information architecture, usability testing and search engine optimization.
I'm often called upon to consult on prospective digital products and mentor other digital designers on their projects.
Below are a few recent CI projects of which I was the principal designer.
Assante Wealth Management
This website was rebuilt from the ground up. I was responsible for the wireframing, information architecture, visual design and front-end development of the project. I worked closely with developers to design a content management system (Drupal) that gave product owners the ability to easily maintain the website themselves.
Tablet web app
Evolution Private Managed Accounts
Advisors needed a tool they could take on the road to illustrate different investment scenarios for Evolution products. I was responsible for wireframing, prototyping, designing and developing a product suitable for collecting a lot of information and presenting dynamic charts and data.
For internal use only
Tax, Retirement and Estate Planning
The TREP team needed a website where there was no website before. I worked closely with the business unit to wireframe and architect the site and organize their content. I created concepts, then designed and developed the front-end and built the content-types, views, panels and pages in Drupal.
Mobile web app
Assante wanted their investor portal to be mobile-friendly. I was responsible for wireframing, prototyping, designing and developing a layout that could display a lot of dynamic information on a small screen.
Architected/designed/developed numerous other CI digital properties including: our Human Resources web portal; the Client Services resource portals for both CI and Assante; and the Learning & Development intranet resource.
