ABOUT ME

SKILLS

At first I intended to be an animator and went to design school fully motivated to become just that. Later I was not satisfied by just animation, so I decided to pursue a masters in interdisciplinary design. To learn and master all the forms of design, as I believe knowing all forms of design will help me to be a better artist.

Rhinoceros, Autodesk Maya, Zbrush, Adobe Master Suite and Cinema4D

This fortunate turn of events has lead me to venture into the field of graphic design, product design, user interface design and animation. I believe in simplifying experience for users, as success lies in simplicity and innovative solutions.

FORD MYTOUCH This is a redesign of Ford’s telematic system “My Touch”. The project aims at maintaining simplicity and accessibility to the driver by keeping in mind the major problem “Driver Distraction”. Here is the process behind giving the telematic system a facelift.


ISSUES Overload of information provided to the user Quadrant division of screen leading to confusion Increase in driver distraction while driving Sometime-stubborn touch screen. Plenty of irritants scattered throughout the user interface.

USABILITY RESEARCH The process of redesign started by analyzing the old and the new interface developed by Ford for Ford My Touch. After a lot of analysis and interaction with the ford’s user interface system, I learn that it is hard for users to adapt to the interface in the ďŹ rst go. Which makes it confusing for the user to understand the usability.
