Hi, I am Mahesh. By weaving my talent for problem-solving with a love for storytelling, I create user experience solutions in the digital space. I use entrepreneurship and design thinking to solve hard problems and build products better.

It all begins with a concept and being able to watch a concept grow into a reality brings me pure joy. My strengths lie in design strategy, customer development, user interface design, usability testing and idea generation. I have a bias toward prototyping and testing over wireframing and theorizing. I am a strong advocate for putting a version of the product in users hands as quickly as possible. I am well versed in customer development and user testing techniques and have experience doing research, user interviews, developing proto-personas, and comparative assessments.

In my search for great adventure, I'm looking for a full-time design role where I can give, take and grow my knowledge and skills.

I am:

  • high in products, technology, design.
  • medium into business, fashion, the stock market.
  • low into conversations which won't improve my life and skills.

Some Books that shaped my thinking in my profession:

  • Don't make me think - Steve Krug
  • Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products - Nir Eyal
  • 50 User Experience Best Practices - Above Fold Team
  • UXPin - UX Design Process Best Practices
  • Several blogs

Some sayings:

  • The design is not just what it looks like and feels like. The design is how it works.
  • People aren’t trying to use computers. They are trying to get their jobs done.
  • The computer in the world rather than the world in the computer.
