On October 7th, 2014, Squarespace 7 introduced a complete overhaul of our management interface, which for me had been over two years in the making.
Wired called it as a UX Dream, and featured it as one of the 27 most inspiring designs of 2014. It was nominated in the Web Services & Applications category for the 2015 Webby Awards (one of two nominations for Squarespace).
As the Director of Interface I led the development of the visual style and UI patterns library with the Product Design team and worked closely with front-end engineering to bring it to fruition, also writing and maintaining the majority of the expansive CSS for the system.
Day to day as the Director of Product Design I have the privilege to lead our world-class Product Design team and work closely with the rest of our product org to make the best online publishing tools in the world.
