Six Flags UX Projects

While at Six Flags I had the opportunity to partner with the Customer Experience team, Marketing, Branding, and Revenue Management as a UX Lead.

My work focused on cross-functional digital growth accomplished through testing, UI design, product & content development, conversion optimization, and CMS management.

Below is an overview of projects worked on during my time with the team.

Documentation and Training

Serving as the connection between marketing, dev, and our users, a large portion of my responsibility was to develop and conduct opportunities for team members to grow.

I believe that every contributing member of an org can apply UX thinking to achieve optimized outcomes. Through hosting UX and conversion focused learning sessions I witnessed several departments experience ongoing growth!

As part of this effort I developed a series geared towards non-creative daily producers in charge of approving design work.

Here Are a Few Examples:

Maximizing Design - Creating High Converting Assets

Maximizing Design - Be the User

  • Conducting Executive Leadership Workshops to Finalize the Layouts

Users of spend a large amount of time using the calendar to help plan their visit. The landing page is one of the top visited experiences on the site.

  • Apply Simplified Layout and Hierarchy to Increase Speed to Comprehension
  • Reduce Scrolling by Removing Unnecessary Copy or Relying on Pop Up Modals

Research & Design

Research Included:
