    My Musings: One year in Design

    It was 33-degree Celsius on 21st April of 2017, however, it felt even hotter that day in Kochi. I had finished drinking coffee and was helping a student solve a problem on ‘Collections’ in Java, I got a call from the HR of Divami Design Labs, telling me that I had been offered a role as a User Experience Designer. It has been more than a year since then, and it won’t be an exaggeration if I say I have been a true user’s advocate ever since.

    My style of blog writing is usually opinion based. However, in this article, I will leverage the research done in the field of Psychology over the years and will try to connect some of the known theories to UX design. These principles, when applied, could help us create better designs.

    Geography, Culture and UX Design

    When you look at a picture on your computer or smartphone, what catches your eye? Surprisingly, the answer to that question might differ depending upon where you were raised. According to research by psychologist Richard Nisbett, Chinese and American people see the world differently!  Americans focus on the central objects of photographs, while Chinese individuals pay more attention to the image as a whole. Astounding, isn’t it ?

    మౌనానికి ఎన్నో ముఖ చిత్రాలు ( various faces of silence )

    పూల రేకుల లాలిత్యాన్ని మరపిస్తుంది
    కత్తి అంచు కాఠిన్యాన్ని తలపిస్తుంది
    తృణీకార సందేశానికి ప్రతీక అవుతుంది
    ఖేదాన్ని మోదాన్ని
    రాగాన్ని ద్వేషాన్ని
    సుఖాన్ని దుఃఖాన్ని
    విషాన్ని మాధుర్యాన్ని… భాషాంతరీకరిస్తుంది.
    పలుకుది శబ్ద భాషణ, మౌనానిది నిశ్శబ్ద భాషణ.
    అనుచిత సంభాషణను తుంచి వేయగల మందు మౌనం.
    Finally మౌనేన కలహం నాస్తి.
    ========================================
    భాషాంతరీకరణ  =  Expressing in a different language
    తృణీకారము = Neglect
    ప్రతీక = Symbol
    ఖేదము = grief
    మోదము = Happiness
    రాగము = Affection
    అనుచిత = Improper

    Bridging the Gap between UX & CX: Possible?

    A few weeks back, I was flying from Kochi to Hyderabad. Since I have been flying frequently these days, I considered the idea of accumulating frequent flyer miles with one of the airlines. On further research, I decided to go with one airline and downloaded their app.

    Though I have never used a mobile application for booking air tickets before, I found the application very simple and easy to use. As a UX designer,
