My Role: I was the primary brand and UI designer, front-end developer, and animator.

The Chrome extension was developed so that Basecamp and Trello customers could seamlessly track time to their projects with Harvest.

This idea evolved into the Harvest Platform so users could natively implement time tracking to any application.

My Role: I worked in a team of 2 designers and 2 developers on UI design and front-end development.


Harvest Onboarding Illustrations

Playful illustrations to promote a friendly and positive first-time user experience for Harvest customers.
