Hi, I am an Interaction Designer, Prototyper and User Researcher from San Francisco with more than 5 years of work experience with start-ups and industry leaders. I am currently pursuing Masters in Interaction Design at the California College of the Arts, San Francisco. If I am not solving for human needs, I would either be out on a drive, paying gym that occasional visit or binge watching Game of Thrones. Black Mirror, the TV series, is my new go-to for inspiration.
Working with the XD team which is an overarching initiative, it has been a great opportunity to step back and look across all the products through a unified lens.
Worked intensively on the bootstrap framework of bring and maintain consistent visual language to bring the prototypes to life for the client to interact and understand our solution better.
Worked on improving the first experience of Autodesk users through a new offering. Involved in the early stage of the project gave me the freedom to lay down the ground work and ask the right questions for the team to explore.
Involved in the complete production cycle of the web and mobile products from ideation, conceptualization up to the execution stage.
Exploring areas of Tangible Interaction, Natural User Interaction, Augmented Reality and Empathetic Design process. Working to better define my design practise through my Masters Thesis on the use of connected devices to help augment behavior change for the elderly.
Conceptualized an augmented experience of physical spaces in my thesis project on a International Convention Center project. Created interactive spaces with the right mix of formal and informal interactions.
Krishna was my student at CCA in the MFA program, then joined my team this summer as an intern for the XD Practice at Autodesk. This boy is going places! Maria Giudice - VP, XD at Autodesk and Co-author of Rise of the DEO
I had the pleasure of working with Krishna during his internship at Autodesk. Krishna was a real self starter that provided our team with fresh insights a new perspective. Krishna provided the project with a solid conceptual base that we continue to build upon. Great work! Jon Page - UX Manager, Autodesk Inc.
Krishna is the quintessential scientist-designer who can resolve complex problems with eureka type solutions. He is someone who is capable of looking beyond the obvious and question the ground rules. Sometime break them too for good. Shayak Sen - UX Manager, Commonfloor.com
Krishna is very bright, highly motivated and has an uncommonly strong work ethic. In addition to his skill, his pleasant demeanor and kind smile make him an excellent team player. Matthew Passmore - MoreLabs
