Google's GRC

I was hired by Reciprocity Labs Inc. to create the initial designs and front-end for Google’s GRC* application. Once complete, the application will be an open-source offering to help global business. The development team was given permission to work outside of Google’s Kennedy style, allowing us to create a new and unique platform, but with consistently styled widgets. While the initial push didn’t incorporate how items would be viewed on non-desktop devices, I monitored and managed those elements requiring responsive design.

*GRC is the umbrella term covering an organization’s approach across these three areas. Being closely related concerns, governance, risk and compliance activities are increasingly being integrated and aligned to some extent in order to avoid conflicts, wasteful overlaps and gaps. While interpreted differently in various organizations, GRC typically encompasses activities such as corporate governance, enterprise risk management (ERM) and corporate compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

It was a fun challenge creating an interface that, once adopted will scale exponentially across the world. It was inspiring to work in collaboration with Google and their development teams. I can’t say enough positive things about the people that make up Google.
