I am Chhavi, a pre-final Bachelor's Design student from IIT Guwahati,
India. I am newcomer, both to FOSS and writing an introduction to send out
to a mailing list of designers (very intimidating, both).
I have courses ranging from elements of design, graphic design, animation,
to UX and HCI. I mostly dabble with projects involving UX :
- I designed the UX of an e-governance portal for our state with a team of
- An extensive app for a global insurance firm during my summer intern.
Not showing off but I might have designed t-shirts and posters for
advertising too. :)
I documented it on my portfolio website
I built this summers (HTML/CSS and twitter bootstrap framework to make it
look good on mobile as well). It would be kind of you to check it out. I
made a profile <https://github.com/chhavijustme>
on github too, though
presently it has only my attempts to learn React and a side project
is my current love (a
collection of interviews about girls in IITs, since girl boy ratio is 1:10
here and there are a lot of stereotypes in India about it).
All in all, this has made me realize how design has the power to impact
communities and how it's more about learning from people and their
contexts, than books.
I stumbled upon Fedora Design page while exploring Outreachy. I would like
to start helping out with what I can do, and learn from the community (the
word is "contributing", so I have learned by lurking on IRC channels). I
have read through Mizmo's blog about Fedora Hubs, and the links her blog
took me to. I would be happy to help with any part of the design process
that is going on.
Phew. That would be all. I apologize for the length, nowhere did they
mention rules about this so I took the benefit of doubt. :)
