Square Communications and Presentation Design
Square creates tools that help sellers of all sizes start, run, and grow their businesses. Square was founded in 2009 and is headquartered in San Francisco, with offices in the United States, Canada, Japan, and Australia.
I have worked at Square since December 2012 and have designed presentations, investor relations materials (including the IPO analyst day), infographics, documents, social media posts, and more. My current focuses are storytelling through presentation design, simplifying financial statements and highlighting sellers in quarterly shareholder letters, and clean design in infographics. I also spend time creating templates, building tools and resources, and teaching design and software skills throughout the company. I've developed documentation, internal wiki pages, and technical walkthrough videos for many of the types of projects and types of software that I get to work on and with.

Document and Report Design
Square's 2016 Q3 Shareholder Letter
This letter is a review of Square's third quarter in 2016. Designed to highlight Square sellers, product and service launches, metrics, and it's story. The goals were to: clearly communicate the results of the quarter, emphasize highlights that shareholders/investors and analysts need to parse quickly (such as the key quarter highlights and metrics on page two), tell the story of Square’s sellers and through them Square’s story, and maintain a Square look and styling.
Square's 2017 Diversity and Inclusion Report
Square's Diversity and Inclusion Report for 2017 was created to reinforce that diversity is more than just metrics and that inclusion is crucial; having employees feel safe and appreciated at the company. We wanted to show numbers beyond race and gender, including sexual orientation, trans identity, and language.
The report was created by a small working group, and primarily written by Sam Verdile and Alicia Burt. Designed by Zach Grosser in Figma. Published at square.com/news, and in several publications such as TechCrunch and Mashable.
