Flipboard Universal Design System

Lead Product Designer

Introduced in 2017, the Flipboard Universal Design System is the first in the company's history. The system includes a series of core components, layouts, and interaction patterns used across all Flipboard properties.

I co-designed the system for the release of the new Flipboard, working closely with the product and brand design teams. Additionally, I led the development of the team’s first component library, positioning the design system to work at scale for future product work.
