"I am passionate about users and want to make them passionate about my designs"


Who am I?

Kshitiz Singh

Senior User Experience Designer

Working at Stella & Dot

I am currently a Senior User Experience Designer for the Product Management Group at Stella & Dot leading their UX research and design activities. I have robust experience at MNCs and part-time freelance projects. Prior to this, I worked at Ericsson Research for 3 years where I designed 'Social Web of Things.'

A Michigan Wolverine

I graduated from University of Michigan (GO BLUE!) in 2011. My specializations were Human-Computer Interaction and Social Computing. I did my undergrad in Design from Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati.

Scuba Extraordinaire

We know more about the Mars then our own ocean, which intrigued me to pursue Scuba Diving. I strive to improve my skills, achieve perfection in the methods and explore new territories. I also love to snowboard at Lake Tahoe and try hard to make my falls look less embarrassing :).
