I aspire to be a better product person everyday, and I truly believe in "learning by doing". Here are a few samples of concepts and wireframes I've created to explore product ideas, with a focus on the user. Much of this is outside the realms of my full-time job.
Online E-Commerce Marketplace for South-Asian fashion
Find Desi Wear's vision is to make Indian Fashion accessible to the rest of the world.
finddesiwear.com is an online wiki that provides recommendations on the best online stores for South-Asian fashion. While south-asian fashion e-commerce is a growing space with thousands of vendors strewn across the web, it's very overwhelming for a buyer to comb through the weeds and identify vendors who are reliable and of high quality. Find Desi Wear aims to be the one-stop-shop for all south-asian fashion. Platform: Responsive Web Interface
Analytics Dashboard on Web | Restaurant Business | Design Prototype
Here's a prototype I designed for an analytics dashboard for a restaurant owner or manager. The dashboard provides visibility into metrics most relevant to the business such as number of customers, items sold, revenue and profit over a given time window (say, last 30 days). Also included in the dashboard is the number of units sold for every item on the menu, including the most popular item in the given time period.
The prototype below is an expanded view of one of the menu-modules in the dashboard. Clicking on the menu-module provides additional metrics, such as a weekly histogram of units sold in the last month, including comparative stats on how the item performed since the previous month.
Designing an app to create & send Gift Baskets
Gift baskets are great for both personal and professional use to express gratitude or appreciation for your friends, families or colleagues. They're great for holidays, special events, or even as favors for a business event such as a client meeting. However, there aren't many mobile - first solutions (apps) out there that allow creating and customizing gift baskets with a few simple taps.
