I own a Desert Storm and I find RE's bullets and TBs very comfortable for long distance rides. The posture and the price were the factors that made me buy one. But once I started riding bullets, I couldn't but notice the design changes that can be brought about in the dash.

First I wanted to do a major revamp to the dashboard as a part of my design practice, but then it only makes sense to design something that can be made usable. So I did my research on how the current dashboard system works in RE bullets + classic models and tried to make a slightly better dash with better, but just enough features to make the milli-second glance to the dash/speedo worth it.

Here's a 2D design of what I propose-

Here's what exists-

Why the change?

Petrol indicator: Now this is something bullet riders will really need. All of the bullet and classic models don't come with a fuel indicator, but they do come with a light that blinks if the fuel is low. Once it blinks, it's said that there are around 4-5 liters of petrol in the bike and it blinks repeatedly until you fill your tank, of course.

     I've designed a full-fledged fuel indicator with a circular scale, and this compartment also remains as the seat for the MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp), whose action is also to blink 'n' number of times according to the malfunction that has occurred in the bike.

- Indicators: It's an assumption that the top tip of the dash must be visible in the peripheral vision, and if the side indication (left or right) of the indicator is visible (Currently one button glows for both left and right) in the peripheral it would be ideal.

- Neutral: The same peripheral vision theory applies for this as well. I have been training myself to stop at signals in a neutral and if that is also visible while I stop it would be perfect.

     The lights currently being used for the neutral and the indicator lamps will also have to change. I have now made them more solid for the green to pop out, but the lights are barely visible in direct sunlight.

- Odometer: I've kept it clean, giving it some space for the brand to showcase its vintage standard and a clean white odo with condensed number kilometers. The peg is retained in red (as existing in some models) because it doesn't look off and as a plus, there is red in the logo too.



The positions of the odometer and the upper/dipper light are changed because they needed to fit the new layout of the dashboard. While I tried to retain the old vintage analog look of the dash, I have also tried to make it functional and usable.     

This is my very first re-design of something physical and it has been a very interesting quest. Further, I have been planning to think of something similar to this, and alongside learn Blender to be able to translate designs like this into 3D.




This was a very minor attempt at making the splitting experience smoother and better. Splitwise was too bad and nothing else did it along with some rich design. This can also be considered as a face-list for Splitwise. 


On the homepage you will be able to see the money that you must get and give, no complex terms like owe and owed here

Also note that the circles symbolise get and give. Remind will take you to a flow where you will be able to remind people who you must get money from, and settle will take you to a flow to give money and finish off your debts. 

The homepage

The arc layout is a fresh addition to this screen and adding expense is the most important action in this screen.

The interaction of which can be like this -

And then you start adding people who you want to spliit with, continued with the amount and then the confirmations.


How did you like the very brief spliit concept? 

Give me a holler at me@indhuja.com if you have a fresh concept in mind that you think needs shaping. 


This was a matrimony site website re-do. A primarily Tamil-based matrimony website. The irony!  

In the matrimony websites that exist, it seems that they are quite easy for the mainstream South-Indian parents, and there is a probable reason for it- 

The clutter. 

For design-obvious reasons, the clutter makes the websites ugly and ugly isn't always a bad thing. I tried to keep the clutter, yet make it user (also includes the parent) friendly. 

There were a lot of screens I had to do for this, but showcasing only a few of them here. Most of them are accommodative (let me talk about this sometime soon). Yet, there's going to be a lot of screens, let's brace ourselves already.

This was done for a client who wanted a simple subtle landing page for a Facebook Messenger bot to start with. It was going to be expanded to the Alexa and other smart devices. 

This is the landing page of the website, which is going to be a single page, only above the fold website.  


There was just one other page that I contributed to this project and that was the about page. 

The only gradient usage is a part of an experiment, at the square bubble, is to emphasise on the amount that he will save and lure him to interact with the slider. 

This is as simple and subtle as it can get, isn't it?  

I own the SJCAM 5000x Elite and I found that there was a need for a better app when I purchased it, almost a year ago. I tried to design a better app for better connectivity and engagement- which is what an app like this needs.

Entry is checked with entering the model of the mini-action cam that you own, but you can also skip this. You must enter your screen name and/or login using Google or Facebook.
                   

Once you are in, this is how your filled  landing home is going to look like. This screen is definitely not for the first-time user, it would have a bunch of suggestion options or a bigger CTA to sync his/her SJCAM.

The Stream- will be from people that you follow, Explore- from a lot many people who you don't follow and People- to look for specific users; similar to Instagram.

On clicking one element in the grid it opens into a larger layout. 

Another small detail I wanted to try out is an addition to the bottom nav of the screen- the arrow. Instead of making the menu icon change into an arrow, this can be used this for apps that don't go too deep.

Yet another simple Flinto experiment for the connect device screen animation.

"Wearing ID cards is the best thing ever", said no one ever. And neither has it been fun to learn the best way to hand-over a visiting card. 

Since quite some time, there has been multiple 'scan-your-visiting-card' apps existing but nothing could really replace the physical cards. People have been trying to make fancy visiting cards though but that came at a cost.

And what if you can carry your ID card without having to wear it all the time. And what if there's a single solution for these both?

Thus emerged the concept of the virtual cards -


Your card will be your home screen and you can click on it to flip it. On the back, you will have the office details just like how the ID cards do. And once you want to send the card to someone, it will send only the details that you want to.   


The cards that you have received will be stored under "Saved cards" and you will be able to add tags share and delete them. 

The "Locker" is be a safe place for you to store your super-important numbers.


Swiping up will provide a few options like delete, edit, and share; of which share is kept at a very reachable spot because sharing visiting cards will supposedly be the most frequently used option.

By allowing offline sharing this app is sure to add value in conferences.

And by adding multiple layouts and colors, this will be fun to use and personalize for meetups.

Here are some more screens of "Saved cards", grid and list views and the options view for them both.


This concept if done right can do many things than just replacing your visiting card holder or being your ID card. The social element in this app can drive many things and since this will always keep your workplace and/or your identity connected, in an ideal world, the trust factor will be something that might not be an obstacle, especially to an Indian audience.

This was a design exercise that was assigned to me, and whatever I did in around 2 hours did get me the job.

The fundamentals of this app was simple. The users that get on it are either learners or teachers or both. They can offer to teach something or just discover something to learn; call it social learning + teaching.


                              

The solid colors are something that instill a sense of freshness and of being pumped up, because we need people to be ready to learn and teach.

Also, the card layout with swiping actions to navigate and dismiss was quite "in" and did solve the purpose of exploring the options that was based on location and/or interest.


There is a feeling to the unadulterated screens and keeping them from too many visual elements and movements. With the card occupying more than 50% of the screen and the bold catch lines / CTAs, there are only two things in the screens that you'll notice, and act on.

With single-motive apps like this, it also gets simpler to visualize the functions and flow of the app. It's precise, since the goal is clear and you don't have a lot to account for because it doesn't do a lot of things.

The time slot selection screen isn't the best yet, but it looked right a year ago.

There were also a few other hand-drawn wireframes that I haven't been able to find, but I think this small task always reminds me of the speed at which I can work and a good feeling of accomplishment because (duh) it got me the job.

The colors add to the fun and soon enough I am looking at designing an app with colors as solid as on this one.
