I’ve worked at Medium since 2016 as a product design lead and manager. Some of my early projects were focused on creator tools, including improvements to the editor UI and projects to encourage writers to come back and publish regularly.
In 2017, I was the lead designer for launching Medium Memberships, building the initial flows for our paid memberships. I designed a new type of story collection as a member-only feature. These collections are a useful way to package stories as columns and article series: authors can go more in depth or explore more niche topics in their writing, and readers can have a better understanding of what to expect as new stories are published.
