I'm Arthi, a product designer based in Chicago, Illinois. Currently working as the Lead Designer for OjaExpress, I enjoy solving user problems through seamless designs and genuine experiences. I strive to create innovative and impactful design solutions for the modern world.
"To walk a mile in the users shoes" is something I swear by during my design process.
If you don't find me typing away ferociously on my laptop I'm probably wandering around galleries or chilling at the beach my go-to place.

Other things I enjoy...
Poetry and Books 📚 I enjoy spending most of my time outdoors reading or writing with the sun blasting on my face. Granted that doesn't happen too often in Chicago, but when it does I'm always out with a blanket, some food and a very interesting thriller of the month.
Oil Painting 🎨 I took up oil painting during the last year of my bachelor's. I find the entire Art world daunting and fascinating at the same time. My favorite style would be impressionism & post modern surrealism although I try and fail to understand Rothko. I try to paint at least once a month and enjoy painting en plain air.
Dance 💃 I trained in the Indian Classical form of Bharatnatyam and Mohiniattam. I have been dancing since I was 10 years old and now it has become my go-to cardio apart from shopping.
