Hello, I am Pushkar.
A Lead Product Designer with years of design, advertising and Teaching experience.

I am A Lead User experience and Product designer. I lead a team of UX UI & inteaction designeners and work with developers and project managers to design seamless immersive experiences.

Over the last few years I have focussed on UX design, as I believe that I can make an impact in the industry building on my understanding of human centric design, user research, consumer behavior, creative strategy, storytelling and design fundamentals. I am passionate about design and believe in continuous learning for an ever-changing digital world. To build on skills learnt on the job over many years, I went back to school to complete my Master’s degree in Digital media at The Centre for Digital Media in Vancouver, where I specialized in Product Development and UX design.

I have worked on various projects ranging from Mobile Apps, Augmented reality projects, to Virtual Reality Experiences where I honed my Rapid prototyping, interaction design, User Research, Design thinking and Agile project management skills. I am proficient in many softwares, tools and methodologies that aid me in designing these experiences. As of now I am advancing my Unity3D skills and learning Digital Sculpting using Blender3D and SketchBoxVR.

I come from a long career starting as an Art Director, leading to a role of an Associate Creative director. I led a team of digital designers, writers, art directors as I worked with multinational clients to create strategically sound products and communication in digital media. My work has recived many international awards. My undergraduate degree is in BFA(Applied arts) where I honed my UI design, storytelling, typography  and motion design  skills.

I am passionate about UX design for Mixed reality platforms and involved in a number of contract projects as a UX, product & UI designer. When I am not designing I spend my time learning new skills, participating in hackathons, watching obscure foreign films and traveling.
