I am Prachi Garg, a UI/UX designer from New York.  I constantly draw from my past experiences and so far my roller coaster journey has included- 
- Exploring my love and passion for design with a Bachelors's degree in Accessory Design from the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) India. 
- Fearless pursuit of the unexpected as I lead down the path of creative independence. At 21, I used all my savings to start a business driven towards sustainable fashion, No Strings Attached LLP. It started as a small business and went on to amassing customers globally as I designed and shipped over 9500 products and interacting directly with 5000+ customers in the next few years.
- Rediscovering myself through UX design and making the difficult decision to quit my business and transition to exploring this new domain. I have freelanced as a UI/UX designer supporting B2B and B2C startups and small businesses to improve their product offerings. 
Today, I have 7+ years of learnings however through them all there was one thing I learned about myself: I enjoy engaging with customers to solve their problems. My strengths lie in my interdisciplinary design thinking. It has taught me how to balance business constraints with design needs while unrelentingly advocating for the users. 
 
I am actively seeking job/ internship opportunities in the New York area. If you find me to be a good fit for your company, please don't hesitate to reach out at mail.prachigarg@gmail.com or Linkedin.

My days are often filled with capturing simple could-miss moments. It helps me recover when I feel creatively stunted.
