My name is Arjun and I am a Senior Designer working at AKQA’s NYC studio. I enjoy combining my engineering background with my design expertise to serve as a bridge between development and design teams.

I have experience mapping out user journeys, conducting user research, creating interactive prototypes and refining products through user testing and feedback. By closely collaborating with a broad spectrum of stakeholders, I craft solutions that not only delight users but also align with and achieve business goals.

My professional design experience is diverse and includes product design, UX research, motion graphics, branding, digital advertising, and 3D design. Currently, I am learning to use Rive and Spline to develop more interactive digital interfaces.
