Horizon Workrooms
Remote collaboration reimagined

At FRL, I initially joined as a Product Designer for Horizon Workrooms: FB’s flagship collaboration experience that lets people work together in the same virtual room, regardless of physical distance.

Designers, researchers, engineers, artists and managers, all in a bold mission to explore the future of work using cutting-edge tech.

Workrooms brings together many technologies from across Facebook Reality Labs Hand Tracking, Mixed Reality Desk, Passthrough, Video Call and Web Integration, Remote Desktop, Keyboard Tracking, Avatars and many others - and it’s just one step towards fundamentally transforming how we collaborate.

My main role in the project was to design features to enable the 2D participation in the 3D space.

Video calls

How to book and access meetings and rooms, what happens when users land in the virtual lobby, how 2D people appear in the VR space or otherwise - those are only some of the features for which I led the design.

Augmented Reality

My most recent role at the FRL was for Spark AR, Facebooks's augmented reality platform, working on several features and experiments for Spark's core platforms: Hub, Portfolios and Studio.

Design at Facebook is highly technical and cross-functional.

Responsibilities include forming hypothesis, building low & high fidelity prototypes, working with XFN partners, iterating on feedback and partnering with engineers (and more!).

Spark AR

Designers are involved on all aspects, from defining product requirements to delivering specs to engineers, from researching and dogfooding to aligning decisions across different products.

Collaborating in such large-scale and designing for multiple surfaces (web, desktop, mobile and VR) is an amazing experience, certainly full of challenges and learnings.
