Hi! My name is Siddharth
I'm a User Experience Designer!
I am currently pursuing a Master's Degree in Interaction Design at Umeå Institute of Design in Sweden. Prior to which I was working professionally at Ticket Design, a design and innovation consultancy in India for two and a half years. I have a background in Product Design from the National Institute of Design (NID), Ahmedabad in India. During my studies I was sponsored to be part of an ongoing research project on design and health at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Melbourne, Australia. This multi - cultural exposure of having studied and worked in India, Australia and now Sweden, has shaped my design philosophy and allows me to have a global design perspective.
I have always been very curious and inquisitive as a child, always questioning to know more or investigating deeper to find answers. I am fascinated by how products influence the lives of people and how people incorporate the designs of products in their lives. My interests in multiple disciplines led me to the path of design, where every project brings in its new set of learnings and experiences. I love to bridge parallels and extrapolate ideas from everyday situations to design solutions. I also have a passion for building things and working with my hands, to make tangible the ideas rumbling in my head. As a designer I try to bring empathy, curiosity and perseverance to find that tiny gap of opportunity in every design problem.
In 2017, I spent the year interning and exploring at Above, a Scandinavian innovation and design agency in Stockholm. Currently you will find me back in Umeå completing my Master's thesis in collaboration with Atlas Copco and I hope to graduate this June.
I am looking for jobs starting Fall 2018.
