Serving as visual and interaction designer on this project, I was excited to work with the technology team at Freelancers Union to redesign the website's user experience. Inspired by Google's material design aesthetic and service design principles for social innovation, we created an elegant and easy-to-use tool that independent workers can use to connect to one another, find work, and apply for benefits.
Excited to learn that the website I created the UX and Visual design for has been featured on Everycation's 100 Top Non Profit Websites of 2016.
Freelancers Union is a organization that advocates for independent workers and their education in their fields. This website is a great example of how to take a familiar interface, but keep it from being stale and boring.
Their use of angles is, although possibly over-ambitious, is just an example of the many ways to freshen up a less than original design. A lot of the images and icons on the site do a great job to illustrate the fun and spontaneous mood that the mission of the organization suggests.

Some initial wireframes for this flow.
