MHCI+D Capstone

Product Design

Toki is the product of a self-defined graduate capstone project, consisting of 10 weeks of research and insight generation plus 9 weeks of ideation and design iteration, culminating in a high-fidelity prototype, UI specification, and a presentation to 300+ members of the design community at the Seattle Public Library.

My Role

I worked alongside my two teammates, Xinbei Hu and Can Zhao. I played a key role in user research, ideation, storyboarding, style & branding, and refining UI elements and design decisions.

The Challenge

After 10 weeks of research consisting of surveys, in-depth user interviews, and expert interviews, we identified three consistent problems across the various types of business meetings.


It is difficult to bridge knowledge gaps among attendees.


It is hard to keep track of conversations within the meeting.


It is cumbersome to remember the context of discussions that occurred within the meeting.

The Solution
An automated documentation tool

Toki is an automated documentation tool that manages the complexity and increases the value of business meetings.

Toki uses existing voice recognition technology to listen to important moments in meeting conversation. Toki then translates these moments to personalized actionable items for attendees to access and interact with during and after the meeting.

The Process

The process consisted of a research phase, ideation phase, and a prototpying phase.
