I was responsable of the design effort from conception to implementation of the MVP and post MVP, in a cross functional team collaboration between 3 offices: Munich, Mountain view & Telaviv.
Driven by the Identity team in Munich the Google Account rewamp, was a crucial step towards more transparency and clarity about user's data, providing full control and understanding.
Google Account is a destination accessible from all Google products, Google search, Youtube, Gmail, Calendar and so on. For this reason the products cross dependencies and overall preferences and controls, not product specifics were foundation to restructure the account. Also leaf pages, as possible direct destination from Google products or Google search results, needed a major design armonisation.
As Google Material 2 was running in parallel, aligning and influencing by web opportunity and limitations the design system in development was a crucial in the design and implementation process, validating and testing solutions.
