Software: Introduced Sketch to the organization (Photoshop was used prior) and added InVision to make design to developer handoff easier.
Development: It often became a challenge to deliver static comps to engineers, especially when I'd need to describe how interactions worked and how to adjust UI on media queries, so I taught myself HTML/SCSS and some JQuery in order to have design handoff to engineers be closer to the final product. This became the standard for my own web deliverables and the developers loved having working code in-hand for implementation.
Git: Learned to work directly on projects with the developers, creating styles and updating views, shipping live code to production.
Design System: Began the process of creating a centralized design system as a source of truth for all products to follow. Will be rolling it out in phases from Apps to Websites.
Email: When the need emerged for email design, I took on the challenge of both email design and development. Tested email compatability across email clients.
Accessibility: Am currently leading the charge to make all our digital customer facing properties WCAG compliant.
