D'Cruz

A socially responsible digital product designer.

As a tool for social evolution or a means to create an online disruption, design holds the power to bring about change.

 

As a designer, I believe that I yield that power.

About Me

Who am I?

A human-centric designer with extensive experience working with clients across the globe. Currently focused on assisting businesses to realise their vision and individuals comprehend the value of design.

With an educational background in Computer Science Engineering, Business Administration & Interaction Design, and experience working with companies of various dimensions, I have cultivated a unique set of analytical and creative skills which allow me to transform user needs and business requirements into invaluable products.

Career

I carry 4+ years of professional experience in Digital Product Design which has made me skilled in designing for both people’s needs and business demands. I have spent a significant amount of my professional life with startups and design agencies, and I am currently working remotely for a US-based edtech startup and also volunteering as a Design Thinking Coach.

Education

Specialising in Interaction Design, I graduated with a distinction from the University of the Arts London; one of the world’s foremost arts & design university. I have also secured degrees in Computer Science Engineering & Business which gives me a perfect blend of knowledge in the areas of Design + Development + Distribution.

Future

Do you need a smart-working designer? A quintessential Indian friend like Raj? Consider yourself lucky, because I am always in the the lookout for roles that will allow me to use my skills as a researcher & designer to serve the people.
