My time at Google Health has been focused on the success of the Care Studio suite of products alongside other health-related initiatives. I’ve predominantly focused on defining a cohesive, safe and scalable visual language for our products, leading the design system projects for both mobile and desktop and being promoted in recognition of my work.
My attitude to design in healthcare is that of a function: the healthcare sector is not a place to be flashy or overly playful in the design of interfaces. A combination of UXR and leading the healthcare empathy team at DeepMind taught me about the reality of our users’ days when using digital tools. It’s been my mission to create interfaces that respect our users and deliver value transparently and effectively.
