Over the Summer of 2022, I worked as a Product Design Intern at Soliyarn. Soliyarn is an e-textile startup based in Boston creating sensor-based garments for military, industrial and personal use.
At Soliyarn, I worked to design and create the Web Portal that was used to manage, connect to and visualize the physical garments created by Soliyarn.
While smart, sensor equipped garments are growing in popularity, not many interfaces have been created that allow different clients to connect to their garments and see data through real-time visualizations relevant to their needs.
In addition, Soliyarn has a line of products that aim to be created for both business use, as well as personal use. Thus, any interface must be adaptable and error-free to allow for commercial and personal use.
The goal for this project was to create a coherent and modular infrastructure and interface that lets Soliyarn's varied clients easily access and interact with their biosensing garments and visualizations.
I was responsible for designing the structure of the web portal, closely working with other engineers, designers and project managers. In particular, I worked to design user flows by creating flow charts for paths taken by users. These were designs for different stakeholders of the product - the business owners and managers, the clients, and customers.
I also focused on creating prototypes on Figma for two main workflows:
I also worked to further develop the visualizations of the products. For this, I had to work closely with systems and software engineers to understand the capabilities and limitations of the products. I re-developed the visualization using a 3-D modelling libary called Three.js, D3.js and the Web Canvas API to ensure the visualizations were capable to work with the prototypes created while keeping in mind the limitations of the product.
Unfortunately since this work is under a NDA - I cannot publicy share my designs. If you are interested in learning more, please contact me
