I’m Sharang from Pune, india. As a seasoned Product Designer, I currently hold the role of Design Systems Lead and I have over 7 years of rich experience in the design industry. My journey has encompassed a diverse array of projects, ranging from crafting intuitive native mobile apps, websites, and web applications for startups and scale-ups to tackling intricate, data-centric systems and platforms. From extensive research and user story creation to wireframe design and the development of design prototypes, I consistently deliver high-quality work, leveraging my creative design sensibilities.
At the heart of my design philosophy lies a commitment to creating products that are simple, user-centric, and highly efficient. I firmly believe in placing the user at the core of the design process, ensuring a seamless and enjoyable user experience.
To me, design is more than just a profession; it’s a problem-solving journey and a constant quest for knowledge. I am dedicated to shaping my creative mind to tackle complex human problems, making design a powerful tool for positive change.
Beyond the design realm, my interests span the world of football, travel, and a passion for exploring history, tech, and sci-fi.
