Metromile

ux design, visual design, user research, user testing, content strategy, print & packaging

Have we forgot about what it’s supposed to be like to own, and drive, a car? Too often it feels like driving a car is a constant justification. A justification that’s measured in gas used, miles until next service, monthly payments, traffic times, odometer readings, or even parking costs. It's never clear if we're getting the best “value” for our dollar when it comes to our car.

Metromile makes owning and driving a car easier, cost less, and more enjoyable overall. Simple as that.

For the past year, I've been designing and developing features for a data-focused platform of car ownership services focused on reducing the hassles of car ownership. In classic start up fashion, my daily responsibilities span across the product development cycle, and include user experience design, visual design, feature exploration and development, user research, and user testing across web, mobile, and print. 

I’m so excited to be launching a bunch of cool products this summer - keep your eyes peeled! In the meantime, check out some odds and ends from the past year:

     Pay-per-mile insurance is in California, and it’s awesome! Check out       this video        that I developed and produced with      Lucid Potato   to introduce Metromile’s pay-per-mile insurance to California. Though we explored many concepts, we ultimately focused on developing a storyline around our daily per-usage interactions, such as electricity and water. The video not only explains the basics of pay-per-mile insurance, but also emphasizes the fairness and transparency that comes with this new type of insurance in an immediately intuitive way.  In addition to assisting with concept development and storyboarding, I also helped design the final graphics and animations for the per-usage meters.

    Tweet from a Metromile app user, featuring the latest Metronome packaging.  As we started to introduce pay-per-mile insurance to more and more states, it became clear that our first eco-friendly design was far too granola for a cool tech gadget like the Metronome. Our new packaging still uses recycled materials, but now has a much cleaner and modern aesthetic.
