Stacks Inc. is contributing to the design and development of the FOLIO Project. I have worked with the other UX Lead's to make sure our 6 apps match and function the same as the other apps in the project. I also helped to come up with new UX patterns that the other apps can use and have contributed ideas and thoughts on a weekly basis about UX, design, and direction. I have worked in Adobe XD, Sketch, Proto.io and HTML/CSS/JS prototypes to show the dev team what they are building.
