Currents is an enterprise social platform for employees and leadership to connect through cross-organization knowledge and community away from traditional channels like email. Currents is made by the G Suite team for businesses to communicate and collaborate efficiently across different locations. Other apps include Gmail, Hangouts, and Slides! More information.
I joined Google in 2018 to support this transformation of Google Currents from Google+ into a G Suite product with Google’s newest design system. I was on a team of 5 designers (+ writers and researchers) working together to create new user journeys and features for an enterprise social space. As the sole designer specializing in visuals, I also led the product illustration and worked with marketing agencies to push our product to polish and launch.
