Appnovation Technologies is a global full-service digital consultancy. I joined Appnovation's Experience Team as their Product Design Intern this fall and was given the opportunity to collaborate with multidisciplinary teams through multiple projects.
My internship at Appnovation was truly a precious journey filled with challenges and learnings. Here's the short version of my contributions and key learning takeaways from the internship:
Product Design Intern
What did I do?
design a user-friendly query builder for health practitioners
improve site navigation and content discoverability for a tourism group
redesign the products and services pages for a global cybersecurity and telecommunications company
assist with the internal branding of one of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies
What did I learn?
When working with stakeholders, engineers, and fellow designers, cross-functional alignment is key to moving fast.
It is the responsibility of the designer to include non-designer stakeholders in the process and educate them about design, rather than expecting them to develop a great taste & understanding of design strategy overnight.
Iteration > perfection, something is better than nothing, done is better than perfect—however you may put it, design is an iterative process.
