My name is Gyan Lakhwani, and I am a digital product designer currently studying Interaction Design at the IDC School of Design at IIT Bombay. I make technology products simple and useful for humans. I also write code and draw letters.
I believe in designing for outcomes, and use a research and testing driven approach to create beautiful and functional products. A background in IT engineering allows me to efficiently collaborate with developers to rapidly prototype, build and iterate design solutions.
