Hello, I'm Ganesh and I design digital products that embody clarity, efficiency, and intrigue. I believe that a fantastic UX is mainly through a persuasive push-and-pull of information.
Before my graduate studies at Berkeley, I was a User Experience Design Associate at SAP Labs working out of their Bangalore office. I helped ship various SAP enterprise products chief among them being HCM applications and SAP Project Execution. The latter is a product that helps a project manager monitor scheduling, revenue and logistics for a project.View project
This project was where my team of 4 took a very grounded UX-research driven approach to designing an interface that helps users exchange contact information in social settings like meetups or career fairs. In the span of 4 months, we performed research, laid out UX guidelines and iteratively prototyped and tested the proof-of-concept at various fidelities.View project
In this intense 2-week project, my team designed and prototyped a proof-of-concept for a visualization that allows for comparison between how male tennis players performed on the court and how they were expected to perform. We performed tasks like data cleanup, wireframing, front-end web development and also evaluated the finer visual aspects with users to test our assumptions.View project
Keeping elementary school children in mind, we attempted to design a different experience of mathematics, one that requires children to use their bodies and to talk to each other in learning basic geometry. This project is special to me because of so many firsts - designing for a physical experience using Arduino, coding the software for a game end-to-end, composing its music among many others!View project
Who am I? I'm an award-winning Product Designer who thinks in systems. I'm currently consulting on everything concerning design and use of complex information systems. I've worked as a UX Designer for about 9 years designing for domains like enterprise, security, non-profit, learning, e-commerce and lifestyle.
What drives me? What I love most about design is the myriad opportunities to break bad status-quos - systems that are stuck in a rut because that's how they were always designed. I believe that the best way to design solutions is to understand a system through events, behaviors, and its structure.
What else do I love? Music, cooking and yoga are important creative outlets for me. I'm a carnatic, jazz, blues, and rock vocalist and have over 14 years of performing experience. Homely vegetarian food is my culinary specialty.
I'm currently open to remote opportunities or in Ontario, Canada where I'm looking to relocate. If you do have an idea for a collaboration, hit me up and we could do this over a hot cup of my special chai!
