Metromile App Evolution
Before Metromile had a product design team, I was the only UX designer on Metromile's mobile app starting with the first iteration in 2013. In 2015, we launched our Android app. Over the years, we've changed our focus from being a data-driven insurance app to a more functional insurance app. Below, I highlight the two earliest app iterations that I led. Since then, I have contributed to individual features within our iOS and Android apps as highlighted in my portfolio, with the whole design team being responsible for the app's evolving design.
2013 iOS App
Lead UX/UI designer
Myself, Product Manager, Pivotal Labs team
Our first mobile app matched our blue/green/orange color scheme at the time and focused on showing trips and driving data trends (miles, MPG, minutes driving, and estimated fuel cost). It also displayed engine codes and had a basic read-only insurance section with numbers to call. I led the design initiative and worked with our PM to productize the screens with our mobile engineering team at Pivotal Labs.
2014 iOS App
Lead UX designer
Myself, Creative Director, iOS team
For our second app design, our Creative Director worked with an agency to define the visual style, then I applied the style across our features. As lead UX designer, I also iterated on different data visualizations for the Trends screens, created pixel-perfect designs and documentation for engineers, and spearheaded the trip tagging feature that allowed users to tag their trips with a label and rename trip endpoints.
