Hi! I'm Kshipra.

Product Designer, Ex-Architect, Storyteller, & a Meme-enthusiast.

A big fan of being a big fan of things. // Currently located in India ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ

I've been practicing product design for the past ~5 years, in SaaS startups like Razorpay and Delhivery. Iโ€™ve also been a part of a research team on VR for Health Education at Embedded Interactions Lab, IIT Guwahati, where I got to publish a short paper for IndiaHCI and posters for Interact Conference. I love being in design because it allows me to build innovative products that add value to peopleโ€™s lives. I like to keep storytelling and psychology at the heart of my solutions. I like finding the order in chaotic problems.

When I'm not working or socialising, I enjoy seeking novel experiences, reading contemporary authors, writing on my blog (Design and Personal), playing chess & baking desserts ๐Ÿฎย . Currently learning โ†’ Kalimba ๐ŸŽถ

On Words...

I enjoy writing, as it helps bring structure to uncharted thoughts, and is a solid medium to explore narratives. Have a look at my personal blog here and writings on design and tech here.

I'm also the editor for Razorpay.Design blog and former-editor FishTank magazine at IIT Guwahati.
