ui/ux design internship

BCG PLatinion MAYA Studio


After admiring the MAYA studio's work for several years, I was so excited to finally work with them.  My summer at BCG Platinion served as a deep dive into human-centered design's philosophical and methodological applications on a corporate scale.  I grew not only as a designer but also as a researcher, consultant, and facilitator.


Check out some of the things I did during my internship below

strengthened my human-centered design practi

 advanced my understanding of human-centered design methods and workshop facilitation techniques.  

supported & facilitated design workshops

I supported an internal 2-day human-centered design workshop for BCG executives by prepping the workshop’s agenda and materials and aided in the workshop’s facilitation.

planned & conducted design research

I collaborated with a design research team to develop and execute a research protocol (comprised of interviewing & co-design activities) for early-stage customer journey work

internal projects

I augmented an existing pitch deck for a prospective fleet management system with information visualizations and hi-fi UI wireframes

best of all, I made some great friends!
