Redesigning the apps gallery at Etsy

I interned at Etsy in the Spring of 2013, as part of their general Product Design team. I worked on various projects and devices including their main desktop site, and iOS on iPad and iPhone. 

My first and primary project was to redesign the exisiting API Apps Gallery, shown first. This project consisted of me producing various iterations of sketches and mocks, going through design reviews, coding the front-end and finally working with an engineer to make sure the final product was launched sucessfully.

Among other things, the existing page didn't offer a way to feature great apps and to find specific and popular apps.

The final design consisted of a carousel with featured apps, filters to search, and incorporated the new design aesthetics of Etsy. I designed a template to use for all of the carousel images, in order to be able to change them easily once there were new apps to feature.In Etsy style, the app page was used as a way to not only feature the app itself, but the maker as well.

For this project, I was the only designer and was also in charge of the front-end code, even getting to deploy to the site itself.
