OVERVIEW

     

My name is Dhruw Kovadia, and I am currently an intern at Linker Logic Technologies for the summer of 2018. Interning at LLT has certainly been an educational and highly beneficial experience for me. I’ve learned the functionality of wireframing, and the process in creating prototypes.

LEARNING SKETCH

     

During the initial portion of my internship, I spent time doing tutorials and learning how Sketch, a popular prototyping software, works. The head graphics designer, Casey, guided me through the assets and tools that sketch has to offer. Once I learned the specifics and tools that Sketch provided, I started creating a mock prototype screen for a cryptocurrency application. Once this was done, Ritwik assigned me and another intern with the project of identifying a problem within the medical community that can be solved through the use of an application. After hours of research, we identified numerous issues, but chose to solve the problem of diets for patients who have certain disorders. This was the basis of our application, we named the app NeutraDiet. Another function that the app would have was to provide users with home remedies for simple symptoms, such as coughs and sneezes.

EXPERIENCES

      

ROADBLOCKS

When designing the prototype, I ran into many problems. While I was trying to figure out the color scheme of the application, I learned that I was color blind. It felt surreal, especially since I thought that my view of the world had always been the brightest and best it could be. As a result, this made me have a really difficult time choosing a proper color scheme. Eventually we were able to decide on a scheme that featured lime green and forest green. The color scheme is a very important component of an app, certain colors communicate certain aspects. For example, green can represent health and growth, while blue symbolizes loyalty and trust.

EXPLORING NEW TECHNOLOGIES

Once I finished the screens, I imported the sketch file into another software, Flinto. Flinto allowed me to enhance my animations and create transitions that made the app more aesthetically pleasing. Through the process of my work, I’ve gained an insight on how consultation work is managed and executed.

SUMMARY

Overall, the LLT experience has been one that I’ve really enjoyed. It sparked a new passion that I have for graphic design and user appeal. Though I plan on pursuing a medical career, I still plan on imbibing graphic design within my future -- whether that’s as a hobby or as a part-time job in college.
