Brand Direction, Brand Design, & Illustration

Prior to Robinhood, trading was complicated and required a good sum of money to dilute the cost of commissions. Robinhood opened access to the stock market by creating an easy-to-use mobile first experience with zero commissions. A whole new generation of investors was born.


When I joined Robinhood in 2015, I was only the second Designer on the team. My responsibilities spanned branding, product design, illustration, and marketing.

For most of my time at Robinhood the Design Team consisted of Zane Bevan, Ilie Ciorba, and me. The three of us worked closely with Co-CEO, Baiju Bhatt, to define the product experience at a high level. When leadership asked us to help develop Robinhood's first paid product, our team proposed the name (Robinhood Gold), product experience, payment method (a novel subscription approach), and features (extended training, increased buying power, and instant deposits).
