Hello, I’m Aakash!
I’m a Design Generalist with three years of startup work experience. I love technology, and I help teams build meaningful software. I believe in human-centered problem solving and strive for the right solution for the customer, over fast/easy.
Working at startups, I have evolved my design process around collaboration and critique. My usual day at work revolves around defining business goals, understanding user needs, or aligning pixels with the product vision.
I'm open-minded, despite sometimes strongly opinionated. Please drop a line if you'd like to start a conversation. :)
