Freelancers Union App connects freelancers to lawyers within their freelance community.
Freelancing is growing, especially in New York, and the infrastructure to support the new working class is not quite in place yet. Freelancers often lack legal protections that are in place for full time workers. This app helps fill this gap.
I was thrilled to work as a product designer with the team at Freelancers Union to create the user experience and visual design of this app. I admire the work they do to build a peer-to-peer network of independent professionals.
I used Sketch to create the design, Zeplin to communicate the designs to the software engineers, and InVision to share with the internal clients. The app was coded using React Native.
The look and feel of the app is in line with the Freelancers Union online style guide that I helped create the year before but slightly more toned down. While we still adhered to elements of Google's material design and used the brand's bright orange for UI in the app, the overall look is more minimal and the palette is lighter and earthier.
"Connecting freelancers to the relevant legal experts is a tremendous service to freelancers everywhere." -
