1st runner-up CMU Phillips Sleep Challenge
Session co-speaker at Disruptive Innovation Festival organized by Ellen MacArthur Foundation
Hello and welcome!
I found my most valuable life advice from the book The Little Prince. In that Antoine de Saint-Exupéry wrote “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” This later became the guiding principle in my design philosophy.
I try to understand people, and the world that they live in, at a deeper level so that the design goes beyond the obvious.
Over the past few years, I have developed an understanding and appreciation for technology-driven rapid socio-economic changes. My specific interests lie in humanising technology with design solutions that are future-oriented yet grounded in sustainability. Meanwhile I pretend that I completely follow Machine Learning and Blockchain.
It has been my medium to create compelling, distinctive and thought provoking work. My interests of study are wide ranged and sometimes far out; which I like to bring together through design.
The Art of Looking Sideways by Alan Fletcher perennially serves as a source of design inspiration for me.
How did I get here?
Presently, I’m a designer at LinkedIn. I completed my studies in Design for Interactions at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh with summer internship at Autodesk. Earlier, I was designing mission critical devices as a Senior Industrial Designer at Motorola Solutions in Penang, Malaysia. Previous to that, I was part of the Bosch User Experience Studio in Bangalore where I was involved in creating products and services in the domains of Automotive, Robotics, Additive Manufacturing, Smart Home/Connected Devices, and much more. I completed my undergraduate studies in Product Design, from the National Institute of Design, India.
Thanks for looking in!
