I’m surprised at the amount I was able to learn and grow through this internship experience. Not only did I learn to leverage new tools like FullStory for data analytics, UserTesting for interviews, and TeleportHQ for handoff, but I also learned how to use familiar tools like Figma to their full capabilities. Now, I have confidence working in complex design systems, using design tokens, and building flexible components.
Beyond that, I was able to explore the research and design process at a professional level, diving deeper into heuristic evaluations, affinity mapping, and prototyping. And while I learned a great amount, I know there’s so much more to explore. So I’m excited to see what else I pick up during my Master’s of HCI!
