colleccloset is an app for both the fashion forward and for those who wait until the morning to choose their outfits. This app connects you to individuals who have a passion for styling who will help you create that perfect outfit for you. All you need to do is take pictures of your clothing pieces that you want styled, upload and save it to your collecloset app to get started!
UI design, making it easy to use for the user was a challenge in and of itself as it was something that I had not thought about before. However, from this experience of creating a prototype of my own, it made me aware of the importance of having this skill and how it will become an even more important skill to have going forward.
The feedback that I received from those working in the field of design was not only valuable towards brushing up my prototype, but it also helped me brainstorm ideas of how I could use this opportunity to create further opportunities for myself. In addition, things such as who to target, how to sell this app, areas that I had not considered were brought up from comments that I received therefore I was grateful for that. I strongly believe that this class allowed me to grow as an individual and I would like to take the new skills that I have learned and leverage it going forward.
Department of Information Design
The Information Design Department of Tama University specializes in the the characteristics of information design education and research. Focusing on information technology, we give students the knowledge and experience necessary to succeed in the web, UI, and game design industries.
The students were able to freely ideate and build their own stories directly into Prott to create testable models. In addition, using Prott for user testing allowed the students to get feedback on problem points and make the design process more effective. This project allowed many students to experience and enjoy app design.
Graduated from University of Tsukuba, School of Art & Design. Began working with GK Industrial Design Research Lab for graduate level studies. Joined Tama Art University as a lecturer in 1995. Specializes in product design and information design. Currently organizing workshops such as "Design of Education Environments” and other implementation research focusing on the theme of “The expression of infants in learning and play.” Also involved in research for “Applications for the recording of observations during learning activities”. Received doctorate in 2005 from University of Tsukuba, School of Comprehensive Human Sciences.
I have conducted classes on smartphone app users and interface (UI) design but since introducing Prott into the curriculum, the process of putting form to ideas has become remarkable faster. In addition, thanks to the multiple iterations of user testing, the level of quality of the design has improved.
