About Me

Hello! My name is Muhammad Adlan Arvyanda Ramly, you can call me Adlan. I am a graduating 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.

My main goal is to live a happy & fulfilling life, which can be achieved through solving present day problems by bridging the gap between people's needs & goals with user research & tests, pushing the boundaries of present technology by building experimental interfaces & interactions, and uniting people from different backgrounds by creating engaging stories & user 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 @funkypostulate where I tweet stuff related to UX/UI, Game Design, & my AR/VR Experiments!
