"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." -Maya Angelou here…
I am a multi award winner designer with the educational background of Masters of Integrated Design at College for Creative Studies (MFA) in the US, who has dedicated my time to UX design. I believes that my concentration is not only on providing a problem-oriented approach, but also the inclination of investigating many momentums generated through design thinking process and assess the desirability, viability, and feasibility of them.
“at first, it seems that we need a problem to be solved but eventually the possible solutions must diverge through a creative and efficient process, and the design of a product or a service arrives only at the end of the interactive reflection of the problem and possible directions…. UX design represents the ability to frame and synthesize the abstract of that reflection...”.
My sweet spot is framing the projects.
My strength is to collaborate with many team members including PMs, engineer leads and high-level management to explore and define the requirements and frame the project. The next step would be discovering and diverging many possible ways to frame requirements and gain a better understanding around problem statement. Then I lead the conceptualizing phase with all stakeholders and try to validate the most relevant ones based on desirability, feasibility, and viability.
My Design Philosophy
The end user should have the most benefit of the design.
The big picture needs to be understood and the design should be systematic.
Moving from consistency to coherency
First ideas are not the best ones,
Fail early, fail often
