Designing for the next generation of fintech services

The Barlcays Accelerator (Powered by Techstars) is a 10-week intensive program designed to support, grow, and advise emerging fintech startups. As one of the two Design Associates during the program, I helped the 10 fintech startups with all things design related, from their brand identity to the UX of their websites and apps. As most startups in this accelerator raise funds at the end of the program, I also imagined and designed the pitch decks for each company, helping many of them then go on to fundraise.

Project 1: Alpha Exchange

Alpha Exchange is the first open network for the capital markets community, transforming the way institutional participants interact, share knowledge, and discover investment insight. I helped Alpha Exchange refreshed their brand identity and designed their landing page.

Project 2: Morty

Morty empowers home-buyers to find the right mortgage with a modern, online, and fully-digital experience. I supported Morty’s engineering team by helping them design the more complex sections of their web app.

The application summary page is simple, clear, and direct, showing the users their key application numbers without any complications.

Project 2: Painless1099

Painless1099 simplifies tax season for independent contractors through a smart bank account that eliminates the guesswork from tax savings. I redesigned the onboarding flow for Painless1099 to allow the users to better understand where they are in the flow and increase clarity.
