Hello! I am Manasi,
an Interaction Designer.
I believe in creating experiences for and with people and making them coherent with the passion, empathy and power of design. I enjoy bridging gaps between the physical and digital world, creating a cohesive, holistic and delightful experience. I am hands-on, optimistic, and always an active listener.
Understanding Systems and Structure
As an undergraduate in architecture, I always had an eye for details. My architecture background helps me think structurally about problems and to engage with people as a humanist. It also helps me understand how to create complex analyses, undertake in-depth research, perceive flows and interpret criticism. Most importantly, it has made me realize how a simple design decision can affect a user.
I love to Collaborate!
My graduate study in Interaction Design allows me to practice my design and collaboration skills in real projects. As a part of the team, I worked with non-profits like Root Division and BAWSI (Bay Area Women’s Sports Initiative) in the Bay Area to solve real problems. Design is evolving and with new creative challenges coming up every day, I believe that we need to recognize and analyze the wicked problems, understand the people involved and collaborate to meet the challenges.
