The app

HD Widgets provided hundreds of widgets with customization for typefaces, clocks, colors, icons, and other features. It spun off three widget packs and an icon pack.

My role

As co-founder, I was responsible for all design including UX development, branding and logo, play store materials, press releases, website, onboarding, and the user guide. I conducted UX research through direct customer feedback and moderated the beta user group.

I was product manager and strategist, leading a small team of developers through three major updates.
