Product Designer – Contract

Website PPFA Planned Parenthood Federation of America

Care no matter what.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America has need for a short term contract product designer to help with product design (specifically visual design and brand identity and UX workflows) with our chat based products Roo and Chat Text.

    • Visual design and identity exploration for combined onboarding
