I am Prachi Garg, a UI/UX designer and Ex-founder from New York.
Originally from India, I moved to the US in December 2019. Back home, I
graduated from the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT),
India with a Bachelors's degree in Accessory Design. My experiences through design school lead me towards creative independence and at 21, I used my savings to start my business driven towards sustainable fashion with No Strings Attached LLP. A rollercoaster adventure that has truly shaped me for the better.
Having been a people watcher my entire life, the human psyche had always intrigued me. Through keen observation and direct interactions with over 5000+ customers, it enabled me to discover pain-points refining my business and product offerings. I have 7+ years of learnings developing growth strategies for my business, designing and shipping 9500+ bespoke products and gifting solutions globally.
In 2018, I discovered the impact of UX methodologies on a product while improving the experience of my eCommerce store. By evaluating data collected from Google analytics and 1-on-1 customer interviews, the insights helped me discover new pain-points.This clarity that came from understanding the users encouraged me to transition to UX design. I enrolled myself in a UX boot camp and began work as a freelancer in 2019
Today, my strengths lie in my interdisciplinary design thinking. I enjoy & embrace ambiguity. Coming from a background of design and business, I leverage skills from both worlds. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or Linkedin.
