Hi. I am Vipul Thakur.
User Experience. Web . Perpetual .
— A little about me —
I am a second year Masters student in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) from Georgia Tech.
I strive to learn about the complex relationship between humans and the ever-innovating "computer"; and how both influence and adapt around each other - at the same time.
I have previously worked for 3 years in IT Services with AtoS India on a Knowledge Management Application for Schlumberger. Involved in managing their Web systems and regular client interactions, I have developed the following belief system:
Belief 1 : A beautifully coded system with lack of design, will fail to capture a user's attention.
Belief 2 : A well designed system/ interface, with no focus on user needs, will excite briefly, but fail to satisfy in the long run.
Belief 3 : A system designed purely based on user needs is a myth. A designer must find a sweet spot between the user needs and the client's needs.
Code. Design. User Needs. Client Needs.
