Project Summary: I joined the Zalando mobile app team in 2016, and the mission was clear: revamp the apps, ensuring they not only looked modern but also felt consistent across iOS, Android, and Windows Mobile. Beyond the aesthetic overhaul, the project also involved creating a set of Sketch templates and libraries. These tools were designed to streamline future design processes, ensuring consistency and efficiency.
