— Ratika Madan is a designer, researcher, and travel enthusiast living in Atlanta.
My projects have been part of my curriculum at DePaul University. I was exposed to use multiple design tools such as Adobe Suite i.e. Photoshop, Illustrator, XD and prototyping tools such as Axure RP & Balsamiq. I have completed end to end work beginning from User observation to persona formation to prototyping and finally creating high fidelity prototypes.
Baby Monitor Mobile Application
Baby monitor application is a health monitoring application which works in tandem with a baby sock which continuously monitors baby’s vital statistics, sleep cycles and overall baby activity. As part of the project, I created a high fidelity prototype for the mobile application.
My Relocation Planner
I created a medium fidelity prototype for a we based application as an assistant for immigration. Immigrants can use this application to search for information such as housing, restaurants , grocery stores, sightseeing places, social security office, government agencies, etc. before they come to the U.S. Through this app, they can easily be familiar with their neighborhood.
Information Architecture Redesign
I optimized the information architecture for a Chicago based web & graphic design training company. I created personas and identified pain points in navigation and information architecture and utilized Open Card Sort technique to perform architecture re design.
Research is an essential component of User experience design. User research forms the back bone for understanding user behavior, user psychology and helps in designing interactions with deeper perspectives.
