Hi! I'm Sakshat. I like designing the way people experience and interact with products.
Over the past couple of years, I've...
...been awarded by Microsoft's Hacking STEM team for designing a classroom learning activity, Trebuchet Trials, that cost ~$4 per student.
...worked with Intel to design a desktop feature, Chiron, for Windows 10 to imagine a new way for self-employed workers to manage their digital activities.
Before I was a Designer, I spent six years studying and practicing architecture.
I like having a multi-faceted approach to design, which includes speculating on how a product fits into the broader landscape of a user's ecosystem and an organization's business goals, to designing the fine details of interactions and transitions. I work at the intersection of brand identity and user experience. I draw on my experiences as an observer, researcher, designer, artist, and a craftsman to deliver rich, meaningful, and user-friendly experiences.
I'm currently pursuing a masters in human-computer interaction and design.
I worked as an interdisciplinary designer for 2 years both as a contractor and a part-time freelancer. I was involved in varying roles, working at the intersection of user experience and brand identity.
I started off as an architect working at different firms across the country where I excelled at creating new experiences using existing design systems.
