About Me

    I was always intrigued by the use and impact of colors on various everyday things in life and wanted to explore more on this front. My professional
    journey continued as I nurtured my creative side through layout designing, and mastered Visual designing. But my passion towards design didn't
    end there, I believe that my journey is more than just designing interfaces. I am a strong advocate for user-centric design. I believe understanding
    the users and considering their needs and frustrations is the key to improving functionality, efficiency and experience of the product.
    I design thoughtful, beautiful, and easy-to-use digital experiences. Always up for creating inspiring experiences to make end users life easier,
    efficient and meaningful.
