My last day at Sonic was April 7th, 2021. I’m now the Director of Product Design for Digital Banking at MidFirst Bank in Oklahoma City. I’d say “I’ll come back and write more about by time at Sonic later,” but as you can see below, I’m pretty bad at that. Someday.
I’m now the Director of Digital Strategy & Ecommerce and obviously don’t have much time to keep this site updated.
The app is doing great, setting digital sales records each month. We just launched Order Ahead on the web (order.sonicdrivein.com). And yes, I’m still on the Jobs page. Don’t tell college me I’m on the “Corporate Jobs” page for a fast food corporation.
I’m currently working at Sonic Drive-In as a Product Designer in our digital lab. Think of it as digital R&D for any part of the Sonic experience that involves a screen: mobile, web, social and on-lot order screens.
So far, our team has redesigned, rebuilt and launched the new LimeadesForLearning.com and SonicDriveIn.com. More cool stuff coming on both of those sites and our other digital platforms later this year.
I also had the opportunity to redo some of our mobile app experience. I’ll post more about that update soon. The biggest change was from a hierarchical structure to a tabbed structure for quicker navigation and exploration of the features. We also brightened up and modernized the UI elements throughout and created a more native Android app (more about that in another post soon as well).
Here are a few side-by-side views of the updates we made to the Sonic app.
