Hello, I'm Siladityaa Sharma. I'm a tech nerd with a computer science background, a designer that loves to express my ideas visually. I’m inspired by music, sci-fi movies, video games and like to call my design process “experiments”. From wild conceptualization and ideation to realistic, accessible solutions, I want to make the unfeasible, feasible. Experimentation with prototyping and testing is a way for me to see how my designs interact with people and their senses. Considering future tech, its implications, opportunities, and feasibility has shown me that my path in Interaction Design needs to be firmly rooted in ethics. Whenever I design, people come first.
