As a Product Designer at Stackstream, I was entrusted with the responsibility of enhancing the usability and aesthetic appeal of the platform. Stackstream, a streaming platform tailored for developers, facilitates collaborative coding and streaming experiences globally. My task encompassed a comprehensive overhaul of the website, along with a reimagining of the product's workflow and dashboard.
The primary objective was to optimize the user experience on the Stackstream platform. This entailed making it more intuitive, visually appealing, and efficient for developers engaged in collaborative coding and streaming activities. The goal was to create an environment that fostered seamless interaction and engagement among users.
