Online Application Redesign

I worked on a project team that included a UX analyst, a content strategist, a designer/UXA, and several developers to redesign the online application experience at Capella University. We worked with internal business partners to make the application mobile-friendly, to improve the overall user experience, and to improve the experience for self-sufficient applicants.


My role as the web designer mainly involved collaborating and designing the UI and patterns based off of wireframes. More specifically, some of my tasks included:

  • Conducting competitive analysis
  • Creating an icon font
  • Curating and designing icons
  • Preparing mock ups with specs for developers
  • Building a prototype in Invision for user testing
