/ Work Experience

Coherent Labs  / Senior UI/UX Designer
 
Responsible for creating various game interfaces that demonstrate the highlights of Coherent Labs’ middleware - Coherent GT and Hummingbird. The software enables the creation of game UI via the web technologies - HTML, CSS, JS. The design of these interfaces ( named Coherent Kits) involved creating a design document, making a prototype, creating the final screens and their adjacent graphics and illustrations, and creating the necessary documentation needed by the frontend team to implement them. I helped the marketing team with various branding and promo materials like business cards, t-shirts, etc.. I was also entrusted with creating advertising material for the GDC 2017 and 2018 conferences.
