  1. The Parallel Mind

Rana Zandi

Hello! I'm a cognitive designer passionate about pushing the boundaries of design and exploring the fascinating realm of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). With a Master of Arts degree from OCAD University's Digital Futures program, I've combined my graphic design background with cognitive science studies at York University.

With a solid understanding of visual communication, aesthetics, and user-centered design principles, I create designs that align with human cognition, enhance usability, and provide engaging user experiences. Throughout my journey, I've collaborated with multidisciplinary teams, conducted user research, and applied cognitive design principles to diverse projects.

I stay updated with the latest technological advancements, design methodologies, and cognitive science research to continuously evolve as a cognitive designer. My goal is to leverage my expertise in cognitive design to create meaningful experiences that bridge the gap between humans and technology, ultimately improving people's lives.
