Portfolio

A collection of my previous work and design process. I touch on case studies starting from user research, the prototyping, testing and reflections on the outcome.

Accomplishments

  • Redesigning the user experience and interface of Pagalguy.com. Migrating to a new and improved interface was met with resistance as it is with any sudden change. But our user retention rate stabilized and increased over time. Currently, the platform has over 23000 groups on various topics.
  • As part of a team in the EIT Digital Kick-off event, we won first place for coming up with the most viable business plan. The plan catered to the increasing need to "know what's in your food". People are more conscious about what they eat and should easily be able to find information about what is present in their food.
  • Participated in LivHacks Esports Hackathon by StageCast where we designed an e-sport idea. We won the place for "Best Fun Game" at the event. 
  • Part of the Media team for Mental Health Week project at KTH, Stockholm. My team and I were involved in creating graphics and social media posts for promotion.
