My name is Pranava (pra-na-va). I like to design and build experiences that are intuitive, accessible, elegant, and fun. I usually like to keep things uncomplicated.
So, I'm constantly exploring simple ways to make people happy through the stuff I design.
For 10 years now, I've experimented with various mediums and I'm currently neck-deep into designing digital products.
Guy Delisle, Luke Wroblewski, Aarron Walter, Jared Spool, Liz Fosslien and Jake Knapp are some artists and designers who inspire me a lot.
As an individual, I love telling stories and I spend a lot of time on maps dreaming about travel. I also write stuff about design, read comic,s, and practice yoga when I'm not doodling. I obsess over fluffy animals. Especially alpacas!
As a designer, I am deeply interested in processes that support scalable solutions. But, more than anything I love people and, I thrive in inclusive teams & collaborative environments.
With 4+ years of work experience, I've been fortunate enough to design for several products such as Teams, Kaizala, Workplace Analytics, Viva, Excel, and Acrobat.
I like speaking, mentoring and I also organize workshops as a Figma Advocate for FoF Hyderabad , doing my small part in helping the design community grow.
Anyway, if you're in Bangalore and wanna grab a cup of coffee together - message me.
A collection of most recent memories and activities I do inside/outside of work. ✊
Our team stood 3rd place globally in the most recent annual Hackathon within Microsoft. 🏆
Guiding several designers & interns over the last year in areas of goal setting, communication skills and networking inside & outside Microsoft.
So humbled to have led a committee that raised about half a million INR by selling art and organizing workshops through the Microsoft India Give Campaign. 💟
I'm very outdoorsy! I love going on trips, rides, hikes, long treks, and swims. I recently got to trek in the alps. 🗻
