Hello, I’m Aakash!
I use design to solve problems and specialize in product strategy, user research and experience design.
I’m a team player and love working with multiple stakeholders, collaborating with product & engineering teams. I always keep the holistic product goals in mind, and ensure that my designs are consistent, address the right user needs and solve big problems for business & customers.
I have over two years of work experience and a versatile skill-set, specializing in - planning and conducting user research, facilitating design sprints, collaborating with multiple stakeholders, rapidly prototyping and shipping detailed visual design.
I started the design team at FarEye, New Delhi, where I led the redesign for their flagship SaaS offering, solved problems of usability, scale, and growth. Being the first designer on the team, I pushed for a culture of user-centered innovation across the company and built a diverse + motivated design team.
