How I approach design

Understand

Empathize, Define

My goal is to gain insights through observation, interview, contextual enquiry and domain to understand user. Identify and define the problem with scenarios and storyboarding. Combine research to kraft personas and user stories.

Explore

Ideate, Prototype

I generates lots of crazy, creative ideas to explore multiple directions. Brainstorming, sketching, competitive analysis, paper prototyping helps to visualize the range of ideas. Next step to create tactile prototype with information architecture from the primary feedback.

Materalize

Implement, Validate, Analyze, and Iterate

I return to user for feedback, run rapid low cost experiment. Test design with A/B testing, usability and Heuristic evaluation. Learning what did not work, what to implement and scale to put vision into effect. Wait its not over yet..!! Design is never finished, its redesigned over and over again. So I iterate, improvise.

Where I've designed at

I spent majority of career at BNY Mellon and iNautix.



What my peers say

"I was lucky to have Sandeep from the UX team to design my Trade applications. Sandeep has gone above and beyond his technology role to learn and understand the very complicated Trade Business in a short period of time. He devoted his time and knowledge to achieve the project in a professional and timely manner. His dedication and professionalism are highly appreciated and recommended. "
— Jessie Chung, Product Manager at BNY Mellon
"I trained Sandeep or should I say Sandeep trained himself in User Experience and Design Thinking. He only needed guidance in the right direction unlike most junior UX folks. He is a quick learner and always strives to be better than yesterday. He is a fast reader of books and a self-styled orator in the making. He strives excellence and is en'route to becoming a great designer as time goes by. "
— Arun Jawarlal, UX Practice Lead at YuMe
