About Me

Hello! My name is Muhammad Adlan Arvyanda Ramly, you can call me Adlan. I am a recently graduated undergraduate student at Pennsylvania State University, majoring in Information Systems Design and Development. Through my education, I've learned the principles & patterns of object oriented programming, best practices & tools for design, and implementing research methods & data gathering for research. I enjoy accepting challenges in different media & platforms. My interests are Human Computer Interaction, User Experience Design, AR/VR/XR Systems, Game Design & Development, and Cognitive Science.

I aim to bridge the gap between people's needs & their technology with user research, push the boundaries of present technology by creating experimental interfaces, and unite people of all backgrounds by crafting engaging experiences.

With my curiosity to learn, hard work, resilience, & teamwork skills, I believe I can be a great UX/UI Designer, AR/VR Developer, & HCI Researcher! Feel free to explore my web portfolio and contact me at adlanarvyanda@gmail.com if you need any additional information!

In my free time, I usually listen to jazz/prog rock, play retro & experimental games, watch sci-fi/thriller movies, or read comics & manga, but drawing is my main hobby. Other than project prototypes & wireframes, I like to draw concept art, pixel art, & illustrations. One of my favorite series is my Mixed Reality series, which is a collection of drawings that I draw on a scenery that I took with my camera. I enjoy trying different styles & media to improve my skills.

I also have an interest in exploring different software design patterns, algorithms, platforms, and APIs. I mostly learn through documentations, tutorials, forums, helpful friends, and mentors. I am always interested to participate in project-based competitions and hackathons, which I think is one of the best ways to improve your skills in designing, developing, and networking with other people at the same time! Currently, I am developing a new hobby in writing articles about UX/UI Design on Medium which usually covers about case studies and my design process. I have a development log on Twitter @adlanarv where I tweet stuff related to UX/UI, Game Design, & my AR/VR Experiments!
