To me, the world is a design canvas with problems that inspire me and solutions that help me thrive. 

Hi! I am Keerthana. I recently graduated from Interactive Telecommunications (ITP), NYU. I am passionate about solving complex problems to help people live a delightful life and enjoy experimenting with ideas through code. I am experienced in creating end-to-end product experiences from discovering needs to designing interfaces to testing them for usability. Previously, I designed and delivered products for startups in the fields of Educational Technology, Healthcare, and Design Consulting.

 

I am currently looking for full-time opportunities as a UX/Product Designer. Please reach out to me if you would like to discuss opportunities or collaborate on projects.
