Introduce yourself ๐Ÿ‘‹

Helloโ€ฆ We the Northโ€ฆItโ€™s Nilay here from Canada and Always looking for the community for the apps like Emma where people can discuss the issue and suggestion about their use cases. Glad to be here. I heard about Emma from Product Hunt. Currently using Money Pro app from last 10 years and always tried new things coming to the market as I find app I am using customizable as I want but not intuitive and kind of boring. No use of data I am inserting everyday l. I am looking for something which can be like my pal and guiding me on my way of financial journey. First impression has been good with Emma letโ€™s hope it served my purpose.

Hello, Iโ€™m Crystal :wave:

Iโ€™m a UI Designer in the US. Iโ€™ve been lurking here for a bit and learned lots, so I figured I should properly introduce myself.

Iโ€™m really loving Emma so far. Itโ€™s easy to use, meets my needs, and has a really fun UI. As someone who sees a lot of boring corporate UIโ€™s as part of my job, itโ€™s really nice to not have that on my phone too. :sweat_smile:

Hey Crystal!

Welcome to the community and thanks for sharing a bit more about you. :slight_smile:

Thanks for your feedback, we definitely want to make Emma the most playful FinTech app out there!

What kind of companies do you design for?

I work for an engineering company that designs automated systems for airports and theme parks around the world. So I design the uiโ€™s for the operators of those systems like the baggage handlers, customs, security, ride operators, etc. Itโ€™s good work, but fairly no nonsense and definitely never fun looking like Emma. :laughing:

Sounds really interesting though! Have you been doing it for a long time?

Iโ€™ve been doing this for three years, so not a super long time. Prior to this I worked various jobs for Disney World (Iโ€™m located in Orlando) like ride operations, administration, and graphic design. That was definitely more interesting, but itโ€™s nice to make enough money to live off of and pay my student loans. :upside_down_face:

I feel like Iโ€™ve missed out because I have never been to Disney land haha!

If you ever get the chance to go, I recommend avoiding summer time! No sane person should be outside in the Florida summer heat, yet so many do it anyway and suffer. :hot_face: Hopefully you get the chance to go someday!
