Some thoughts, articles, learning & case studies from my journey in designView on Medium
I'm Rahul, a UX & Product Designer with a background in Electronics Engineering. Currently, I'm pursuing a Masters in Human-Computer Interaction at Indiana University, Indianapolis. Recently I interned as a designer at Google and Studio Science. Prior to this, I worked as a UI and UX designer for about 3 years in both enterprise & start-up environments.
At Indiana University, I'm working with Dr. Lynn Dombrowski to design solutions which improves the accuracy of compensation for low-wage workers. Previously I worked with Dr. Richard Holden at Regenstrief Institute to solve healthcare management problems.
My goal as a designer is to create engaging, functional and accessible user experiences that delight people and solves complex business problems. Outside of work, you can often find me cycling, watching movies or photographing. I enjoy reading about psychology, design, technology and listening to an unhealthy amount of podcasts.
Worked on an unannounced project with the Google hardware team. Privileged to learn to product design and strategy at scale from some of the best designers, researchers and engineers.
At Studio Science I assist the product team in defining the UX of web/native apps, crafting beautiful interfaces and creating solutions that meet the needs of the end users.
Researching, analysing data & prototyping new technologies to improve healthcare and management. Working with experts & being guided by amazing professors & seniors.
Embracing challenges, connecting dots and learning new skills to turn ideas into products. Explorating the world of HCI and how it impacts people's lives & experiences.
Worked in a diverse team of designers, developers & analysts on a fortune 500 company project. Designed an ios app & observed the business of design & how corporate giants work.
Redesigned a mobile & web app for a pharmaceutical company. Being the only designer, got my hands dirty on all the phases of design from research to front-end coding.
Worked in a design agency directly alongside clients, marketing teams and designers to collaboratively create branding strategies & visuals in a variety of media.
Conceptualized and designed an e-commerce mobile app for local handicraft industry funded by MSME business incubator. Failed as a startup but learned to take risks and get up again.
Joined our college's annual social-cultural fest as a designer & led a team of 8 people to create web identity, advertising, marketing content, social media etc for 2 years.
Created stuff, broke stuff and learnt to fix stuff. Got to know a thing or two about design. Took part in a lot of extra curricular activities like drama, event management & public speaking.
Grew up in the most diverse city of India. Developed interest in reading fiction, sketching, watching movies, & playing chess. Learned the art of terrible jokes.
Have any suggestion or interested in working together on a project?
