User Experience // Design // Research

amrita_collage3

Hi, I’m Amrita.

I use design to solve problems and communicate solutions. I have a wealth of experience in web, print, product and digital design. I’m focused on UX because I value process, research and human-centered design. I believe getting to the heart of a problem comes from understanding where user needs are not being met. I’m inquisitive, driven and reliable. In my spare time you’ll find me: biking, doing Pilates, gardening, reading about design, human nature, and politics, or out on an adventure.
