While employed as a graphic designer at LinkedIn, they launched LinkedIn Learning, their online learning platform which enables people to discover and develop the professional skills they need through a personalized, data-driven learning experience. I was given the opportunity to create illustrations for the thumbnails used to represent each course video. I was a part of the team that developed the style guides which dictated, pixel by pixel, what the thumbnails should look like, making sure they supported the mission and professional style of the LinkedIn brand. Each thumbnail provides a visual representation of what the course is about. Many courses are very complex with multiple chapters and learning points for the users. This required I gain a full understanding of the course content so that I could translate that into a single illustrated image. Some examples of these courses are: Niche Recruiting, Learning InCopy, and Learning Data Science: Tell Stories with Data.
