Revise production plans and implement techniques along with using Photoshop scripting to streamline production. Lead a team of freelance designers, participate in team building and assisted other members with the technical aspects of Photoshop including shortcuts and advanced usage to speed up production to reach tight deadlines on time and budget. 

PROCESS: Work with sports experts to interpret product development document and create information architecture and wireframes that sports fans will enjoy using.  Break each screen out into individual Photoshop documents and create a production schedule for revolving freelancers. 

RESULTS: The all sports app earned #1 in the app store for over 60 days and was one of the most downloaded sports apps in the history of the app store when it was released. 
We divided up the workload between myself and two other full hires, all of us worked together on ideating user flow, wireframes, and design. For the style guide we all independently created designs and then we voted on which one we wanted to use. What I loved about working for CBS Interactive is our team did not have egos which made it easy to work together as we all chose what we thought was best via a democracy.
