I make things

Who I am

I'm Sidd; a designer, developer and general all-round maker. I like creating both virtual and physical experiences, being versatile enough to tackle any part of a project, be it design, development or hardware. Focusing on bringing all elements together to create a streamlined user experience.

Currently I'm based in London UK working as an Angular developer at British Airways, having graduated in 2014 in BSc Digital Art & Technology with Interaction Design with a first-class honours from Plymouth University.

Some things I've done

Mobius

Mobius is a framework for creating wireless “Internet of Things” Ardunio projects with web-based control. Mobius generates both, the web-based control and the Ardunio code, allowing you to create huge portions of projects without writing a single line of code.

The Blade

This was a chiptune keytar built by Greig Stewart, Sam Wray, and myself at BuzzJam. It comprised of hacked Guitar Hero guitars, a Rock Band keytar, two Game Boys, an Arduino Mega, and a Raspberry Pi, and a Leap Motion. The Blade was featured on the BBC and Vice.

British Airways

The project I am working on at British Airways involves re-creating the entire booking platform from the ground up as an AngularJS application. The project aims to transform the current platform into a cleaner, simpler, and more user-focused experience.

Quartz

Quartz was an interactive installation. As an individual walks past a physical phone, the phone will ring enticing the user to answer it. Once answered the user will be connected to a random phone number from a database of people who have opted into the project, creating a conversation between two strangers.

Laptop Screen Monitor

This was a project I undertook when my previous laptop died. Aiming to reuse as many of the components as possible, I modified the laptop's screen to function as an external monitor. This project was quite popular, generating around 1.2 million hits acorss a number of media websites, including Hacker News and Reddit.

KOTH

KOTH is a game based on 'king of the hill' that takes place both physically & digitally. Players must enter randomly generated codes on their smartphone, the active code is displayed in a set location. After a user has entered the code, they become king. This initiates a cooldown on the code screen until the next code generates.

TermiSoc

TermiSoc is Plymouth University's computing society, of which I was chairman of for two-and-a-half years from 2011 to 2014. Together we ran weekly events, and more infrequent larger events, such as 50+ person LAN parties. I also was in charge of creating all branding, promotional material and other media for the society.

The Only Way is Freshers

Branding and promotional media work I did for a student event. The event was a several-hundred person student night hosted by a cast member of the depressingly popular TV show, The Only Way is Essex.
