In between all the craziness that was 2020, I was lucky enough to join Square as a Product Design Intern for 12 weeks. Over the summer I joined up with the incredible SPOS design team, where I was able to work on a series of emerging products aimed to help our sellers better manage and run their businesses.
Despite everything happening in the world, everyone I had the privilege to work alongside were endlessly helpful and I can't emphasize enough how welcoming my team and the company was as a whole. While this was of course an amazing experience in a professional sense, it doesn't compare to how much of a positive personal impact it had on me and my overall understanding of design. I think it's safe to say I learned more in those 12 weeks than 4 years of college (don't tell SCAD that).
Unfortunately as of writing this, these specific projects haven't yet shipped so I'm not quite at liberty to share what I worked on. However, feel free to reach out and we can discuss my experience, and you can read more about it on the Square Design blog!
