About Me

Hey There,

I'm Rakesh Arvapalli

 

I am an User Experience / Product Designer. I am skilled at finding and defining problems, developing a bigger picture by analyzing the problem from multiple perspectives. I love sketching, wire-framing and building prototypes. I get excited about mobile interactions and experiences as it has become an integral part of everyone’s life.

In my next role, I would love to work with an in-house product team so I can be part of the product from inception till production.

My Philosophy

As I work more years in the Design, I started drawing parallels to life and design. Like when using some daily object and wondering how easy it is to use it or how difficult it is that we love / hate using it. I'm starting to try and find the rationale behind those products. What makes it good? What makes it bad. Is it the product that's designed bad or it's a good product but it just doesn't fit our workflow.

I'm learing that anything we say or do have to be intentional in both design and life. That defines the product. That makes the product unique as it defines a person's character.

My Story

I’m fascinated by building things since i was a kid. I remember taking apart some of my non working toys to figure out the problem and in the process learning how they built it. I believe my passion for analysis has come from that trait. I truly believe in what Albert Einstein said “Problem Finding is a lot harder than problem Solving”.

Solving Sudoku is one of my favourite past time. In sudoku when placing a number in a particular position, we need to think about a lot of possibilities from various directions and I learnt that when we are defining a problem, it is imperative that we need to look at it from various perspectives or else, we will end up solving part of the problem or worse.

From Jan 2016, I started my MS degree in Human Centred Computing from University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Its where I learned all the design concepts in depth and got a lot of practical experience.

More information is available on my resume. Reach out to me if you want to discuss more about my experience or my work.
