Kodak Carestream Brand and UX Integration

Kodak’s dental practice division had 10 years of acquisitions, with no brand consistency, no coherent UX guidelines, antiquated software code, strict regional requirements, and clumsy or nonexistent product & module integration – for example, merging imaging into the EMR workflow. I was hired on as UX lead to perform contextual research, provide strategic experiential analysis, create guidelines and frameworks for integrated design and branding, and champion a more integrated approach across Kodak’s diverse development teams, across several divisions and continents.
