Growing up between two different cultures was a fascinating journey. The middle eastern arabesque art and arabic script combined with my Indian roots developed a unique sense of appreciation for art and culture. Language, food, people and landscape further influenced my curiosity to explore new ideas and develop an orientation for design thinking.
The knowledge of, and the need to learn more about design and design thinking advanced me to Pratt Institute in New York. The experience I felt and the knowledge I gained from professional individuals, professors and experts was rewarding and humbling.
Through Work by Mathew, I strive to design products and services with an intent that allows consumers to make informed decisions. As an active designer, I am fun, energetic and mindful of the projects I collaborate on. In a competitive work environment it is important to be organized and adaptable, which are two of my strengths, apart from collaborating and seeking inspiration.
