So, Hi, I am Rajiv Surya, working in Immersive Experience Design for past 1 year and testing all AR/VR Designing tools, for designers to explore. For my full profile, you can visit my LinkedIn page here.
To help aspiring designers or professional designers or anyone who is interested & wants to explore and get in Designing for AR solutions.
When we talk about AR/VR Designing, we get complicated thoughts that we as designers should be knowing the 3D tools like Blender, Rhino and developing tools like Unity to make our AR solutions reality. …
People expect creativity from only artists, designers or geniuses. But that’s not true. Some people communicate their creativity well, and the others are not able to communicate. Everyone has a creative side to them. Possibles reasons of not letting it out can be less motivation, less creative confidence and lack of awareness(that we can think creatively). Here is a small attempt from me, which compiles 20 possible things which might boost and nurture your creative confidence, to explore your creative side. It is for one and all, irrespective of their professions.
All these points are from my influences, experiences &…
It’s Obvious Series — Story 2 — A method done with less investment, but has more than 4x ROI.
And let’s see how it can be done in an easy way. 🤘🏻😎
Have you ever heard people in a Team, assuming and saying things like these
‘This content won’t work, as it is too short for people to understand.’
‘We should not have multiple navigation structures, people won’t use it.’
‘People are not too tech savy, they won’t understand this fancy design.’
‘They are used to the system from past 10 years, don’t change anything. They won’t use it’
Series — Story 1
It’s Obvious will be a series of my thoughts and observations of UX trends which are going to be highly observed and recommended for now and the next few coming years.
Because these are fundamental things I am going to talk about, which needs more attention for experiences which are being designed for today and tomorrow. BUT, mostly it’s not very obvious in solutions around you(or I would say much less used). Let’s put some light on the ‘Obvious’ trends which needs to be looked upon thoughtfully. …
The facts say that
In 2018, 1.66 crore(16.6 million) travellers visited Dubai.
By 2020, the Vision is of welcoming 2 crore(20 million) travellers to Dubai.
Dubai is ranked 4th city for the most travellers visited in 2019.
And at an average a traveller, in Dubai, spends $553(38k INR)per day, which is higher than any city in the world.
Wuff, too much high on stats? 😱
So, here, there is a big opportunity to design an experience or a website for these large audience or travellers, for better planning of their travel end to end, holistically.
But, there a many websites…
Before we start: why UX writing?
As a Designer, you have this inherent quality of asking ‘Why?’. Sometimes it is so excess, that it can be annoying for some people in your team. But don’t mind it. The important part to remember is that when your ‘why’ intents are clear and transparent, then your team would definitely understand your work pattern in the long run.
A recent experience, I would like to share with all, especially Designers and Developers, which might be very helpful. As any Designer, we tend to make people’s life better with a service, a product or a whole ecosystem. …
The new way of leading a Team and a project
Democracy and Dictatorship. The two terms which are drastically debated from centuries. These 2 words have different schools of thought, where one is used very positively and the other is used very negatively.
One provides freedom for all and one prevents freedom for all. But in this blog, I will put forward the process involved in these 2 terms used for Design sprints or in a Design process. Lot of people might not be comfortable with the word ‘Dictator’(all thanks to Hitler, and also someone from Korea 😆 ), so…
Some common questions most non-design & design background people have are
“What is the difference between a wireframe and a VD?”
“When to use wireframes?”(means what stage of the project)
Sometimes a Project Manager will say “Send the VDs by eod. Will discuss internally”.
Sometimes Client sees the wireframe and asks “Will the color be like this?”
Sometimes a Developer asks “How different the UI components will look in the Final Visual Design?” (just to plan estimates of development effort)
And also this. “Let’s take sign offs from client on the wireframes”
Clients and multiple stakeholders might know or not…
Hello all the designers and developers (or I would say all design thinkers), this piece of write up is not restrained to any one or two user group. As any professional, you need to think as a design thinker. This thought process is a universal approach to all professionals who want to design User-Centric Experiences for users around the globe.
