My experience at Product Design Launchpad impacted my life in more ways than I can explain.

The way Rohan focussed on the foundational knowledge in an insightful manner blew my mind away.

I will forever be grateful that I got a chance to be a part of this!

I had a lot of confusions in my career, I was struggling for a very long time. I am engineer who was trying to make this switch for a long time.

Then I came across Rohan after that he told me about Product Design Launchpad. This was not only a product design education but also a mentorship program where I got clarity and confidence that was missing earlier. I am thankful for all the learnings I have got here.

A few key learnings: 1. Clarity of what you are doing and why? 2. The Role of Research in a Design Process In just 1 month I could crack a good offer and joined a new organisation.

My journey into UX...

Eight years ago, I started learning design during the early days of my engineering college.

Started with zero knowledge, zero experience and zero mentors.
I knew absolutely nothing about UX design!!!
Finding the right resources, mentorship, books, videos, tools I was all over the place. I practiced day and night, to figure out the basic path.

And finally got my first opportunity after working really really hard for 1.5yrs.
Since then I have worked with a lot of startups in India and abroad.
Zomato, Urban Company, and major startups in Dubai, Singapore, Indonesia, and other markets can vouch for my journey.

Looking back, It was not an easy journey!
It took me a lot of time and effort to figure it out the right resources, the right experience, the companies to work with, where to even get started!

Today, I have coached and mentored over 1000+ students.
We have understood the biggest struggles and right formula to get through them smoothly.

And, now I want to share it with you!
I am super excited to invite you take this Journey with me.

PDL has widen my horizons regarding the design thinking. It taught me that designing the pixels is not just enough, we need to design the stories behind those pixels as well.

I have learnt a lot from the PDL sessions.

Thanks Rohan for giving me such a great opportunity. Your hardwork is admirable and you have been a really good mentor throughout.
