ABHINIT n PARELKAR
A developer and an aesthete with an ambition to bring a positive change in the world by designing usable products for the humans and advocating sustainability.
Influenced by the design ethos of Dieter Rams & Naoto Fukasawa, I decided to transition my career from technology to design to fulfill my appetite of making an impact.
This led me to pursue M.S. Human-Computer Interaction degree. The aspect of a designer to have an ability to bring a change by improving the users' lifestyle is the reason why I'm pursuing my career in design.
Thinking about the environment in which a product would be used by its users, in other words, stepping into users’ shoes – the way a user would use the product/service in the wild are the thoughts that motivate me for the user-centric and iterative design process.
My openness to solving problems of products irrespective of their dimensions (either 2D or 3D) through a design process is what drives me. I believe inclusivity in the human-centered design is the key to make a product successful.
I relish in observing people's unconscious behavior & empathizing their pain points to design a meaningful experience.
