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 Product Design. Right after graduation, my curiosity leads me to dive deep into the world of Entrepreneurship in 2013 with No Strings Attached, a bespoke handcrafted fashion brand. A rollercoaster adventure that has truly shaped me for the better.
I have 7+ years of experience interacting with 5000+ users, synthesizing research, designing, strategizing, shipping 8500+ products globally, and managing high-intensity projects in the dynamic eCommerce industry.
It was while designing my brand's website on WordPress that I came across the user-centered process and realized that I had been unknowingly incorporating parts of it in my self employed journey. After months of self-learning, I opted for a UX boot camp in April 2019 to better lay my foundation of UCD.
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 goals and technical constraints while unrelentingly advocating for the user.
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.
When the work shoes come off
An advocate of healthy eating, yoga & Crossfit. A deep thinker, I love one on one conversations; you will often catch me people-watching, wondering what their journey has been and how their experiences have shaped them. I believe every person has a unique point of view to share; something we can learn from; if only we listen.
