Hey! I'm Akansha Aggarwal, an interaction designer student. I am on one-year study break from masters program (Interaction Design) at Umeå Institute of Design in northern Sweden. I am currently interning at designaffairs GmbH, Munich, Germany. I am originally from New Delhi, India and have a background in product design.

I am passionate about user-centered design and keen on working across platforms to design meaningful products, services and experiences by combining my research, interaction and visual design skills. I think it is all about putting people before technology. I put my heart and soul in whatever I do with lot of playfulness in my approach.

Let's get in touch, for any project inquiries or even simply say hello, just drop me a line :)
