I joined the CanYa team in the early start-up stage as a digital designer. At the time, the team was comprised of 6 other people from tech, marketing and finance. Eventually, the company grew to a global team of over 30 individuals. I learned the most about design and user experience during my time at CanYa. My role was defined by the work to be done, and eventually I was promoted to Head of Design, leading a team of 4 designers. Cryptocurrency and blockchain were still relatively little known concepts to the layman, so I was able to get in- depth exposure to the space as it rapidly evolved. I was responsible for the UX, UI, logos, graphic design, and product design of the platform and its many decentralised applications (DApps).
