Image of me!

I'm Nicole Conary, a designer based in Bend, OR

I genuinely enjoy building and creating, whether that's a digital experience, a LEGO project, or a nifty little micro-interaction that sparks joy. Let's go make it!

I'm not here for pretty, sexy, or cute.
I'm here for confident and empowered.

About me

I am...

the mother of an amazing daughter
the wife to my best friend and biggest fan
a student at heart
looking for the next camping adventure
enjoying Peloton classes
slowly accruing a LEGO collection
avoiding my true hair color
a fan of a great glass of wine
figuring out if I like skiing
a designer
forever an optimist
enjoying life

What I've been up to recently

Product Design

Q1 2024
I've been doing a "road tour" with my partner-in-crime Product Manager to share the vision for standardizing data in our platform for scalability and usability purposes. We've been sharing our findings and how we intend to build a foundation that allows all teams to build reporting insights within the Invoca platform.

I've also been working on a new Report Builder initiative with our Product Manager for how we can modernize our reporting system to allow all teams to independently build reporting templates and create insightful data visualizations.

Q2 2024
As we continue evolving our design system, I am working with our front-end team on the expansion of component tokens and visual design parity as legacy code is modernized.

As we hire more engineers, product managers, and designers, I am holding weekly office hours and working on self-serve onboarding resources such as design cheatsheets, video how-to's, and updating documentation.

Invoca Design System

May 2024
With Figma's introduction of variables, I established primitive, semantic, and component variables and updated all components within our design system.
I'm also working with our design and front-end teams to establish workflows that empower them to propose enhancements to existing components.
