Hello! I'm Manasee.

 

Welcome to my little place on the internet!

 

I am a UX Designer and Product Strategist. Design is more than just a vocation for me; it's a way of life.

I enjoy weaving storytelling in design and examining everything and questioning everything. I believe that design doesn't take place in vacuum, and one should be mindful of the social impact that every design decision has. Therefore, I try to create design that is honest, responsible and respectful toward the people it is meant to serve.

 

I spend my time thinking about how speculative design thinking can help us lead better lives. I enjoy experimenting with layout and type, and I'm currently enjoying learning how to code.
