At-a-glance

I spent my summer 2021 at the Federal Reserve Board, working on the design system and building a reference site from scratch on SharePoint online. I also contributed to adding copiable code components into the design system for developers to easily use in their projects.

Project Overview

From June 2021 - September 2021, I was an intern for the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. For my project, I rewrote and redesigned frontend and UI templates for Internal Technology Management Team’s design system. In addition, I also conducted usability testing and user research interviews to prioritize feature roadmap on SharePoint Online. Our design system is based on the U.S. Web Design System, so I also spent time adapting and customizing components for our developers. By the end of my internship, I successfully deployed a new design system website and client-facing UI, updating 15 components.

Although I can't disclose the details of my project due to the NDA, feel free to contact me if you would like to learn more.
