I’m Payal, a user experience and interaction designer with a passion for projects that are user-centered and have a social impact. I have experience designing for the philanthropy space, sex-ed interventions, and healthcare interventions.
Besides being a well-bred designer, in my past life, I was also a techie and did my bachelor’s in IT engineering. My past experiences with digital art and through my bachelor’s I developed a passion for design and HCI. While working at Wipro Technologies as a Software Developer, I realised I wanted to pursue a career in developing more user-centered products and tools. My Master’s program in HCI allowed me to develop these skills and more. I am now a trained as a full-stack designer having experiences translating research into the design as well as handing off designs and working closely with developers implementing them.
When I’m not designing, I’m an avid reader and podcast listener. Check out what I’m reading/listening to currently and some of my recommendations!
