Artbot is the culmination of a quarter-long project for CS 147: Introduction to Human-Computer Interaction. As part of the Arts & Culture studio, we were tasked with leveraging technology to enable users to execute on their creativity.

Artbot centers around the creation of “disasterpieces,” which are sketches users create in the app over the course of a session. During a session, users are prompted to draw something – while they draw, however, Artbot intervenes in a way that disrupts their artwork. The goal of the user is to turn Artbot’s disruption into something positive, thereby promoting creative adaptability. After each session, users also have the option to interact with Artbot as a chatbot, unpacking and providing a means of saving their thoughts.

As Product Manager and UI/UX Designer in a team of four, I led the group through the brainstorming, research, testing, and development of the project using design thinking principles. Moreover, I defined the app’s aesthetics and branding guidelines with the development of a medium-fidelity prototype using Figma, and supervised the development of the high-fidelity prototype in React Native. Lastly, I created the website and poster documenting the development process for Artbot.

At the end of the quarter, we presented our work to Stanford faculty and industry leaders at the CS 147 Project Expo, where Artbot won Best Visual Design and Best Poster.
