Smart Mirror Cabinet: Body Storming

Numerous prototypes were developed to understand the dimensions of the cabinet and ease of use.

Smart Mirror Cabinet: Prototyping the Dispenser

The electro-mechanical prototype was created for the dispensing mechanism and was tested with medicines of different sizes.

Live Project: Gender Neutral VR Headset

Today, all the major VR headsets are designed by taking male ergonomic measurements into consideration. A large number of women experience neck pain and virtual motion sickness, i.e cybersickness when using VR headsets. As part of the Layer design brief, I designed an inclusive VR headset suitable for everyone.

Live Project: Gender Neutral VR Headset

The headset has a distributed load to keep the head balanced and upright, avoiding harmful conditions such as Text Neck. The design provides greater freedom of adjustment and has a wider intra-pupillary distance range, which is the main cause of cybersickness.

When approaching a design brief, I like to undertake in depth research to create a strong foundation in the beginning of the design process.

I am always aiming to create impactful, user-centric, and business-centric solutions to problems. I have an affinity for user experience, digital product design, and embedded systems and hope to work in the realm of IoT and UX.

Work Experience

I spent the first half of my placement as a Design Engineer at Maruti Suzuki, an automobile manufacturer. During my time there, I did in-depth benchmarking of the interior lights provided in competitor cars in India. I researched how the lighting affects the user experience of driving a car and the brand perception it creates. Finally, I developed a readily implementable interior lighting solution that required a minimum increase in costs and stacked well against competitor OEMs.

I worked as a UI/UX Designer at HPE for about 9 months, for the second half of my placement year. Being the only designer in a development team, I lead the design and UX aspects of all projects I was involved in. I also gained experience in making Agile project plans and setting design requirements with the customer. For my projects, I conducted user research, generated user flows, wireframes, mockups, and worked with developers to bring those designs to life. Designed for web, mobile, and AR.
