I’m a self-taught designer. As I entered college, I started working on creating designs and joined freelance sites like Warrior Forum, Fiverr etc. It was the summer of 2014, and I got an internship at Zomato.
I spent the winter of 2014 as the product designer intern at a startup called Zo Rooms and designed their website and iOS and Android apps. I applied for the summer UX design internship program at Google. I was selected.
My work consisted of creating prototypes and mocks after thorough user research and testing. I got to experience how a huge company operates and how the employees are managed in the best possible way.
My career was designed by internships. I understood the real essence of empathy and the way I saw life changed. The things you learn while working with different teams solving different problems for different people stay with you forever.
