Fluxx is one of the world's most popular tools for grants management. As a senior product designer, I spearheaded the creation of a design system to standardize UI and UX patterns for a mature, data-dense SaaS platform with more than 500 institutional clients and tens of thousands of daily users. I established platform-agnostic design tokens, oversaw the development of component prototypes, built and enforced semantic and accessibility guidelines, and architected integration and deployment flows via Github, NPM, and Storybook.

Grantseeker is a cloud-based productivity tool for grant-funded nonprofits. As one of only two designers on the product, I designed new workflows supported by purpose-built onboarding expriences and a new in-app iconography system. Dozens of user research sessions were conducted to understand the nuances of day-to-day work for resource-constrained nonprofits.

Artwork and website for "Music for the Memphis Group", a conceptual album of compositions by Matt Wellins, inspired by the post-modern Memphis design movement. A custom audio player and bold tiled backgrounds were designed to pay homage to the group's bold graphic style. Innovative use of tiling SVG patterns and transformations yielded an infinite number of thematic variations. Visit memphis.daniel-letson.com
