As a Motion UX Designer at Microsoft Teams, I had the privilege of contributing to captivating UX motion projects that elevated the user experience to new heights. Working closely with our talented visual designers, I led the concept development of UX motion samples, meticulously crafting animations that seamlessly integrated into the app's interface. Collaborating within our internal motion language, I not only explored innovative movements but also devised new motions to enhance user interactions. Among our noteworthy endeavors, my team and I worked on a groundbreaking concept, resulting in the earning of a patent.
I had the opportunity to work on a range of projects, including Call Switching and Expression Flow animations. These projects might not be flashy, but they exemplify the attention to detail and subtle enhancements that UX Motion Designers contribute to the overall user experience. Through fluid transitions in Call Switching and delicately animated reactions in Expression Flow, I showcased my ability to thoughtfully enhance UX, focusing on the small but significant details that make a difference in user engagement and satisfaction.
One of the most rewarding projects I contributed to was the innovative "Living Meeting" feature. Inspired by the concept of collaborative "Living" documents, this groundbreaking feature aimed to revolutionize asynchronous meeting experiences by manipulating timelines of recorded meetings. The ultimate goal was to empower users to seamlessly interject their comments, audio recordings, or video recordings into previously live-recorded meetings. By doing so, the meeting would dynamically update with the new contributions, allowing those unable to attend live to participate effectively and contribute to the discussion. This cutting-edge concept exemplifies my dedication to crafting user-centric experiences that redefine the way people collaborate and engage within Microsoft Teams.
