Constantly in motion, learning and trying new things. I enjoy good typography and creative PROBLEM solving.

Hi there, I'm Mohit, born and raised in Mumbai, India, currently in my final year of Bachelor in Design program at York University/Sheridan College (also known as YSDN), in Toronto, Canada. I am a product design student, who loves crafting big ideas and is passionate about using design as a tool to make the world a better place.

I am a self-driven designer, who is always looking for new challenges and opportunities that can help me continue to develop and grow as a designer. Curious by nature, and driven by the limitless nature of knowledge, I aim to learn, explore and design, creative solutions and experiences that focus on solving practical real-life problems. For me design goes beyond what
things look like, it’s about how things function. It is about having empathy for the users, open collaboration, asking the right questions and following an iterative human-centred approach to bring new and meaningful experiences to life. I like to learn through an iterative ideation and design process, as it helps me gather valuable feedback through the process and come up with an intelligent and rational solutions.

When I'm not designing, I like to spend time learning 3D, photography and motion graphics, creating fine-art illustrations, watching movies and travelling around the world. Let's bond over our love for coffee, dogs, & all things design.

Last summer, I interned at Facebook as a product designer. I am currently looking for full-time University grad opportunities for next year!

Thanks for viewing my portfolio!
