Ityam VasalI believe in designing simple and intuitive experiences driven by user needs.

I am Ityam Vasal. I am currently a Masters student in School of Information at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (Graduating in April 2012). I am also working as an Interaction Designer at MICHR (Michigan Clinical and Health Research) in Ann Arbor, since September 2010. I have a background of over 6 years, with 3+ years of professional experience, in the field of User Experience (UX) and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). I have worked for 2+ years as User Experience Engineer in a financial consulting and business solutions firm named FICO (formerly Fair Isaac). I have my undergraduate degree in Design from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati. In the course of over 6 years in this field, I have worked on a wide range of projects spanning across differnet domains of design like system information design, mobile interaction, product design, graphic design, usability research, smart surface interactions, enterprise suite applications, web and desktop application design, etc.

My desire to thrive in this field is driven by my passion for cooking! This passion instigates the spirit of creativity, innovation and experimentation, which energizes me to make the existing product market a friendlier and better space for the users.

Apart from work, I enjoy dramatics, traveling, sports and participating in design competitions.
