Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Role — Style Director, UI Team
Timeline — November 2018
Over the past few years, we have been a part of a team at Virginia Tech working on the FutureHAUS, a revolutionary prototype for the home of the future, which demonstrates how digital technologies, cutting-edge products, and smart building design can unite to make our homes more responsive to our future needs and way of living.
Our team’s role, as a designers, has been to collaborate with faculty and students to develop the branding and materials for extensions of the project (such as for the 2018 Solar Decathlon in Dubai) and to create the visual interface design for control tablets and displays. Specifically, I acted as the style director, developing our graphic direction and UI experience. The home of the future will look quite different than what exists today, but we can already see how technology, such as smart objects and tablets, is shifting how we live.
