From building working prototypes to designing visual systems, I think big and move fast.

Hello! My name is Claire Squire.
I am a NY-based Product Designer who has spent 2+ years in the startup scene crafting digital experiences that achieve a positive impact on both people and businesses. I received a BA in Design with honors from the University of Notre Dame in May 2020. I'm at best when practicing human-centered design and able to support diverse, multidisciplinary teams. In turn, I create meticulous, user-loved design work. 
I'm a human-focused, insight-oriented, anti-oppressive Product Designer.
I am currently collaborating with a cross-disciplinary team at Expert Institute on an 8-product SaaS toolkit (icons, illustrations, components) reducing developers’ technical debt and enabling marketer to build visually consistent, mobile-responsive emails with a time savings of 10+ hours per week. I previously launched a website unveiling Dr. Susan D. Blum’s two years of anthropology research (learning v. schooling) and simultaneously allowing students to share real school stories.  I pioneered (and validated) an automated digital story collection, reducing researchers’ time field, freeing up 5+ hours per week for high-value product management tasks. I also invented a free workaround using Google Maps to visually map 180+ stories collected from users spanning 6 continents around the globe in the first month following the launch. Prior to that, I revamped Robin Care's mobile onboarding process to serve cancer patients with an empathetic support program, improving retention and user experience by 40%.

What have my managers said about me?
"Claire brought both ethnographic sensibility and design chops to a project I'd been developing with a team for two years. Her technical expertise and visual creativity became the linchpin for this project, which finally launched only because of her contribution. Claire Squire is that perfect combination of inspiration and precision that the very best design embodies!"

"In addition to her design skills, Claire brings an intelligence to her work that sets her apart from most candidates I've worked with. I am convinced that Claire's personality, design skills, technical expertise, and ability to understand problems and develop meaningful solutions will make her a valuable asset to any firm."
