Product Design
Internship at Coinbase

OVERVIEW

I spent my Summer of 2022 growing and learning amongst the brilliant folks at Coinbase as a Product Design intern. During the 12 weeks, I took lead on 2 projects, developed my understanding of crypto and Web3, honed my communication skills, undertook initiatives, and developed some strong relationships.

As my main project, I crafted a learning-oriented personalized guided onboarding to help budding builders kickstart their first Web3 project with Coinbase Cloud. The project slotted to ship in Q4 was tested to drive adoption, reduce time to value, facilitate product discovery, and cross-sell.

I also picked up a side project to establish a self-sustaining Figma hygiene framework and design system that saw more than 70% adoption within 2 weeks and helped increase designers' productivity and enabled XFN partners to better navigate Figma files. I also took the self-initiative of creating and publishing POAP NFTs for the entire cohort of 147 interns to commemorate our internship experience at Coinbase.
