Designing for your future self

I have attended the meet-up which was organised by ladies that UX London . As usual a fantastic evening and the most important thing is the really important topic which most of us missed/forget/neglect/left many times. The highlight of the event was that the speakers were experienced industry researchers and their insight to the topic was amazing. During the talk, they started with behaviour of old people and grasp the area of their needs. She also covered the area of physical body degradation by the age and how we all are going to effect by it. So if we start considering designs which also include older people requirements, then we are actually designing for ourself  and as human, we care about ourself more than anyone else. One important slide while designing anything is: There were many heart touching moments when we saw the videos of old people how they used technology and started to blame themselves rather than technology. This quote definitely my ‘quote of the day’ when someone asked an old man why you press the touch screen so hard: ‘It’s like a doorbell, you assume you have to press it long and hard to get someone to hear you.’ The […]

Conference: TalkUX Manchester

Last week I attended talk UX conference which was held in town hall Manchester. So beautiful place to see from inside and everyone fall in love with the building. It was really good conference which was organised by the people behind Ladies that UX. The conference encouraged to network with people as well so there were many tea breaks where you have chance to talk to so many people. I loved to meet people from diverse range of background and talking with them was fun. It was interesting experience to go on Oculus Rift which broke in the middle of simulation twice, even then I scored 0 (should play games more!). Emily Heat from BBC discussed the card sorting technique which they are using to arrange their huge data. Here is her slides which she presented the same at talk_ux. Mickela Perera talked about the research and testing with children when she was working with cbbc. Quite interesting talk.  Another talk (#300sec) about designing with children by Sandra Gonzalez caught my attention. It was about how to get children involve into the prototyping session. Talk by alberta soranzo made us to think about digital life after death. It is quite interesting to know that […]

Problem Statement

Who like to be a dress designer? Now a day everyone has experienced online shopping for clothes. When people buy clothes online, there is always a fear of size whether it will be fit or not, so they are mentally prepare to return them. The other issue is the design of the clothes and from the research, it is clear that most of the women interested in change a little bit of design to satisfy their needs and aesthetic senesce. The aim of the project is to provide some facility to women so that they can design their own dress and provide their size before buying. To achieve this I have planned to develop software, which will work like a dressing-up game where you can design your own dress and then provide your exact size. There is the fun part of the software, which will encourage more female to nourish their creativity. After designing the dress, put it on social media and spread your exclusive design and that will be open for people to fund it (crowd sourcing). Our solution will encourage female to embrace their sizes and enhance their ability to design beautiful clothes for themselves and for others […]
