Duration2016 - 2017
I joined the mobile apps team of Zalando during the Summer of 2016. The initial goal was to revamp the look & feel of the existing products while unifying their design language.
I could formalise the updated design language and introduce the need of a proper design system, so we did come up with a Sketch template for any future work that needs to be done on the mobile apps.
Besides working on the mobile apps team, I also had the opportunity to work on the zalando.design website and the Zalando Design Toolkit - a set of tools to speed up the work of designers at Zalando.
The Zalando Design Toolkit consists of a menubar app (using Electron) that acts as the wrapper for 5 webviews. The different sections are categorized as News, Files, Resources, Library & Settings.
That was one of the most entertaining projects I have designed and coded recently – Using different technologies than the ones I normally use, ended up building different websites, mac apps & browser extensions to put together the so called Zalando Design Toolkit.
