Self-Teaching Your Way To UX Design

Self-Teaching Your Way To UX Design

Charin Shah, UX designer at Lollypop Design Studio, shares her insightful and inspiring journey of how she got into UX

I’m a self-taught UX designer who is enthusiastic about solving user problems to get the perfect balance between user needs and business. I’m a proud Mumbaikar who knows how to get the work done, a self-starter who doesn’t shy away from any challenge. During my final year, when I was introduced to entrepreneurship in detail, I decided to build something on my own. Hence I started my own company Hygrownics with three friends. Needed to build something which is both desirable and profitable, I immersed myself in the world of my consumers, tried stuff, failed, pivoted and tried again. In 6 months, we were able to provide fresh hydroponic, locally grown produce to restaurants, retail stores, other farms and direct consumers.
