User experience. This word is being on the verge of breaking apart and it has already in certain ways. A common word of a dictionary can hold different meanings and the context in which it is used helps identify which meaning it wants to project. This doesn’t happen for knowledge fields. Fields break apart and form new branches. From Science to Biology to Nano-biology to Quantum biology, our knowledge produces newer and newer off-springs that teleport from neutron to neuron to nebula.
We expand our conscious to strange dimension and then feel helpless when trying to absorb it all after overcoming the Dunning-Kruger effect. And that is the word for what I felt, “helpless”. Helpless in describing a universe of fields this word has tried to encompass. The word is thankfully being broken into new ones i.e user research, information architecture, content strategy, interaction design, visual design and others.
Here are a few projects where I utilized some of these fields.
It was a Sharing and Hiring Platform for Pakistani Photographers.
Doctor Patient Collaboration Portal
