ABOUT


Hello, I am Lakshmi. I am a user experience designer and researcher. Armed with an analytical thinking and engineering in one arm and creative thinking and holistic design in the other, I enjoy learning, exploring and solving new challenges in the field of design. Due to a strong affinity towards colors and built-in curiosity to get to the root of problems, I can be generally found near walls filled with post-its or giant white/chalk boards.


When I am not "UX-ing"( verb, Working towards making the world a better place for users and every other living and non-living things),I find my zen in books, doodling or cooking with fresh ingredients.
