Microsoft's Ruuh – was an Indian AI-powered chatbot made in India, for India. Ruuh was personified to like Bollywood, have a sense of humor, have empathy and a grasp of localized knowledge. Ruuh was a virtual friend for about 2.5 million users.

Since the inception of the project I, as a part of the Microsoft Cortana & Bing team, helped personify the chat-bot and create an appropriate Indian avatar for the bot.

Post the foundation of the Ashvini Menon Visual Design Studio (AMVDS), we continued to work on Ruuh as a collaborator-design-studio.

The following was the work created for Ruuh:-
1. Assisting Research (at Microsoft)
2. Avatar Design (at Microsoft)
3. Logo Design Iterations & Final Design (at AMVDS)
4. Visual Guidelines For Mass Communication (at AMVDS)
