My professional career spans over 5 years of design experience and projects involving Interaction Design, UX/UI Design, and Visual Design. I have previously held the positions of interaction design intern, consultant and lastly the co-founder and principal designer at Algo Design studio. Along with strong visualization skills, my strengths lie in
• UX design research, information architecture, low/high fidelity wireframes
• User interface design (Web and mobile) and usability testing.
• Client interaction, analyzing requirements, and team management.
I am studying International Media Architecture Master Studies, a double degree program between Bauhaus-Universität, Germany and the University at Buffalo. I possess a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Gujarat University, India and a post-graduate diploma in New Media Design from the National Institute of Design, India.
I have worked with Inclusive Design Research Centre, OCAD University and Center for Inclusive Design and Environmental Access at University at Buffalo.
Apart from engineering, design and architecture, my interests lie in creative coding, drawing and digital illustrations.In addition to strong skill sets in the field of UX/UI design, I possess a diverse experience in computer science, tangible interaction, designing spatial experiences and interactive installations. I am passionate about inclusive design and building immersive experiences.
I balanced my day job with personal creative work, like doodle and illustrations, which I push forward by taking part in open flea markets. This has allowed me an outlet to channelize my energy into creating something that gives me a sense of peace with myself.
My design approach—no matter the medium—is a user oriented approach and often starts with an enquiry into the challenges, needs and desires of the end user. . I do several iterations on each point and usually end up refining the one I find complementing user's and client's needs.
