Who Am I?

A product designer and digital media professional with 5+ years of work experience in design and technology. I believe design creates communicative value by filling gaps with effective creative solutions. I am pursuing MS in Integrated Digital Media at New York University and will graduate in May 2019.

Latest Achievement: I have recently been instrumental in winning a grant of $10000 as Team Lead for NYC Media Lab XR Startup Bootcamp for creating a multi-modal VR application for accessibility which originated as a solution for the inclusive design challenge by Microsoft. I was also able to successfully pitch the concept at the Exploring Future Reality event in front on 500+ people.

Objective: I enjoy creating designs which empower, engage and excite people by using user-centered design practices to develop inspiring, intuitive and impactful products, services and solutions that add value. I aspire to explore emerging new media technologies and design meaningful experiences for the user in the physical and digital world. I aim to help people interact easily with digital interfaces, fulfill their thoughtful aspirations and creatively contribute to significant development and progress of society all through the medium of accessible user experience and product design.

Interests: I enjoy playing Basketball, Badminton and simply adore Hiking, Camping and indulging in Adventurous Sports. I am fascinated by Numismatics, love Traveling and am quite the Poetess. Having varied passionate interests have compelled me onto a quest to find my Ikigai. A strong believer of the Yin-Yang theory, I quote Calvin, “If good things lasted forever, would we appreciate how precious they are?”

Cherish-A-Design

Cherisha is a person who is down to earth, diligent, trustworthy and a pleasure to work with. Her ability to quickly manifest ideas into attractive documents is very impressive. Those documents could be in the form of web pages, Brochures, Posters or Logos but she has a way of capturing your requirements and breathing life into them through creativity and aesthetics. She also does this in a flash. I wish her every success in all her business and academic endeavours.

Ian Faria – Talk Temple

When I started working on opening my own Nutrition Clinic, I was on the lookout for a Logo designer who would translate what I had in mind on paper in a beautiful and elegant way. I was already disappointed with quite a few other designers and when I spoke to Cherisha she immediately seemed to get what I meant! She was warm, encouraging, friendly and approachable and was very open to my ideas and inputs and gave her valuable suggestions as well. I loved how she would always send me innumerable samples with various color combinations and font changes until we both were a 100 percent confident of the final choice and she was sure she had done justice to it.

Cherisha has interned with me and also assisted on a few projects post that, hence I have learnt a great deal about her abilities. Cherisha’s determination to learn and succeed has facilitated completion of her projects successfully. She has helped team mates determine timelines and helped allocate work to utilize the given time effectively. During the time I’ve known her, Cherisha has worked to greatly improve her abilities. She is well focused and sharp. Due to her knowledge and aptitude for learning, Cherisha is an excellent design professional and I am certain that her abilities and determination will continue to grow.
