I design prototypes & also prototype designs.
✨ Hello World ✨
My name is Amit. I am a product designer from India. I have been building products since 2006. I love working with product teams & the start up founders. I have also been a guest lecturer at a design school where I talked about crafting beautiful product experiences. I love CSS & interaction design. I strive to become the accessibility consigliere of the product design world.
Research & Analysis
Research is an essential part of my overall design process. Based on the problem in hand, I choose the research type. I am skilled in both remote & in person user research methodologies.
I have worked with a number of early stage startups that have created new verticals. Studying the concepts of the offline world in order to create the online data structures is my speciality.
I love designing for motion. Since my college days, I have been experimenting with 2D & 3D animations. Nowadays, I build animations in After Effects & Principle app.
A design system is a collection of patterns and behaviours that are consolidated in a singular place for efficiency and consistancy. I've worked on creating/managing design systems that cover the entire product paradigm starting from the smallest screen to large TVs.
This is a key part of my design deliverables. I document design rationales and interaction patterns. Documentation helps me clearly organize and deliver my thoughts to stakeholders.
I have worked with product teams on growth hacking, MVPs, AB testing, sprint planning etc. Being a part of the web community from an early age & growing alongside with it has made me a well rounded web professional.
With a little help from my techie friends, I can code what I've designed. I've the technical competence in front-end technologies such as HTML & CSS/SASS. I write modern, clean, accessible, cross platform code. In 2012, for my final year dissertation, alongside a 20,000 word report I had also created a Responsive Wordpress Theme with a mobile first approach.
User Testing & Accessibility
I can plan & execute the remote & in-person usability studies on my own. I'm well versed with the entire process from planning the tests & recruiting the participants to producing a detailed defects/fixes report. I've been studying accessibility for a while now. I ensure everything we produce is 100% accessible.
Whenever there is an opportunity to implement lean UX on a project, I take the lead. I've a solid understanding of the Lean UX process. I've started a pet project focused solely on measuring the user experience with a lean UX mindset.
