Abhijit

I'm a designer with academic background in multidisciplinary design studies and electronics engineering.

For the last five years, I have worked as a Product and UX Designer with diverse teams ranging from early-stage startups to Fortune 500 enterprises to solve design problems for enterprises as well as consumer products.

Besides design, I am an above-average photographer, who loves travelling and reading. I enjoy building tools and design resources.
