Kin is an insurance technology startup based in Chicago, IL. Kin specializes in home insurance for properties that are especially exposed to climate related risk. As one of the highest rated customer satisfaction home insurers in the country, a cohesive customer (user) experience was essential for the overall success of the business.
I started working on the design system at Kin, when hired as the first Front End developer. We worked on creating a cohesisve and consistent design language through out our internal products, and customer facing touch points.
My main contributions was creating the design system documentation website, built on Middleman and deployed on AWS, and then implementing the deisgn system, in code, utilizing web components for interactivity.
