Product Design and Research in VR
What I do for work
Tools I am exploring now
LANGUAGES I speak
I am a Senior UX Designer and Researcher with special interest in VR. For the past 6 years, I have been working in R&D in various companies and studios, and am currently employed at a design and development agency in Brixton, London.
I have two Masters degrees in Communication Design and Cognitive Linguistics (concentration in Mandarin Chinese).
Following up my passion in VR, I have partnered up with a few VR studios. My latest projects include user research for Tvori (an animation in VR tool), usability testing for VR FPS (a mobile VR game), and UX and UI work for PianoBoard (an AR application to help users learn piano).
Over the past 10 years, I initiated and participated in a number of educational events on user research and design, including show&tells, classes and workshops. I have also previously designed and ran a vector graphics course online, and in a well known photo-studio in Kiev, Ukraine.
I write a blog on usability and UX design in VR, and have been recently invited to be a co-editor of Inborn Experience, a Medium publication with concentration on UX for VR: https://medium.com/@anastasiiaku
