Hi, I'm
Apoorva


I find inspiration in understanding the everyday needs, struggles and stories of living as a community in the 21st century. My work exhibits design thinking with the
the lens of data-driven socio-technical
problem-solving to facilitate positive 
change in society.

 

I find inspiration from my everyday experiences, even while, I am wandering, meditating or sipping tea. My design approach is to find a mediation between my user’s needs, the problem, and the technological developments within the business context. I strive to use my passionate, imaginative and critical mind towards work that enables change. I do this by analysing the drawbacks and benefits within the systems practiced by our societies, to achieve a usable and efficient result.
