Project:

Connect & celebrate

Airspeed was created in 2021 with the goal of accelerating connections between team members – helping your organization soar to new heights in terms of teamwork, engagement, productivity, and most importantly making employees feel more connected and celebrated.

As the Sr. UX designer, I was tasked with designing 6 culture building apps within the Slack messaging platform. This included knowing what and what was not feasible from a design perspective due to Slacks (Block Kit) limitations…there are quite a few! But by learning that, I could focus on using Slack’s core messaging capabilities to drive actions within the apps (in Slack) or when best suited take them out to a Web experience where I could control the overall user experience a lot better.

What we delivered
  • 6 apps in Slack
  • Web based admin
  • AI generated awards
  • Over usage reporting
  • Created design system
Challenges
  • Designing within and existing framework (Slack)
  • Understanding what is better to leave in Slack native behaviors vs pulling other interactions to a Web based framework.
  • 3 different PM’s in 9 months

* At the end of the beta, we found that only remote-friendly, mid-market tech companies were willing to pay, and since that landscape is shrinking, we lost confidence that we could grow a venture-scale business.
