It all started during the summer of 2013 at a Tennessee-based start-up accelerator CO.LAB -GIGTANK. Sisasa, a financial tech start-up, is trying to reach the gap between young adults and financial institutes, by offering an engaging social banking app that can improve young adults' financial literacy.


I joined the Sisasa team and worked as an interaction and branding Specialist. As an interaction designer, I worked on designing app navigations, structures, and interface. As a branding designer, I worked on marketing graphics, including logo, wordmark, business card, one pager, visual elements for the websites and so on.


After conducting user interviews and market research, I worked with another UX designer on user cases and interaction flows, and iterated based on feedback. Targeted Android platform, we applied Android design standards and gamification to make it intuitive and engaging.
