Team Drives

Background

Team Drives was a long term strategic project for Google Drive. I came into the project at a later stage to craft the visual theming direction and, as the lead on our Web and iOS platforms, to help integrate the feature into the current Drive UI.

My Role

  • UI Designer
  • UX Designer
  • UX Prototyper

Platforms & Screen Sizes

  • Web
  • iPhone and iPad
  • Android mobile and tablets

Problem

In enterprise, Teams working together often create unwieldy, poorly performing shared folder structures for collaboration. Drive's individual-level file ownership model can create confusing and destructive situations.

Goals

  • Create a distinct, parallel space for team content
  • By default give file/folder ownership and access to everyone inside the Team Drive to limit complexity
