Hello! I'm Harika

I have 8+ years of experience in the field of design. Starting off my career trajectory with Architecture, I have a deep empathy for my users by way of observation.

As a Product Designer, my focus has been on complex sectors that are going through digital transformation. I look for a mission and how design and design thinking can help leverage this mission. Through my various jobs I was able to work in different areas of healthcare, finance and retail. I have experience designing internal laboratory tools, mental health care products and payment reporting tools for drug manufacturers.

When I'm not working, you can find me throwing clay on the potter's wheel, painting the Chicagoland skyline and tending to my mini home jungle.

Identifying edge cases through collaborating with Engineering partners.
