Interaction, Design and a cup of hot
Caffè mocha!

UX/UI, Interaction designer

Holla! I'm Jaison Jacob, and welcome to my new portfolio website! Here I'll be talking about my works, Interests, tastes etc. I'm a Master's student in Interaction design from IIT Bombay, where I was lucky enough to find and work with dedicated, talented young engineers and designers who are sharing the same dreams as I am

Areas of My Interest

UX/UI

I can't design an experience, yet I design conditions that could trigger a good experience. I design User Interfaces and product interfaces.

IXD

I do research, design products and build their prototypes too. Details are important, I make sure that the things I make are intuitive, usable and minimalistic.

WEB

I design the User Interface, do front-end coding of fully-realized applications for web and mobile devices using HTML and CSS, I'm learning Javascript
