Star Citizen

A Suite of E-commerce and Community Tools

A Suite of E-commerce and Community Tools

With over nine years of dedicated work on Star Citizen—starting as a Senior Designer and now as the Design Director of the Montreal Tech team—I have led numerous UI/UX projects to enhance the player experience and our internal tools used by game developers and the support team.

Guided by a holistic design philosophy, I develop strategies and designs to integrate the web platform with the game through our suite of community tools. I also lead the design of all e-commerce initiatives, which have helped raise $700M for the project.

Other key achievements include creating immersive experiences like the Starmap and chat interfaces, and implementing a robust design system compatible with over 15 in-game spaceship manufacturers.
