👋🏾 Hello there! Little bit about myself...

IMG_20190806_211143_181_2.jpg

My name is Ankit Passi,

and I hold many titles - UX Designer, Product Designer, 3D Generalist, Writer and a Full-stack developer and so on...

 

I have a deep interest in everything related to design, human psychology and love to experiment with newer technology.

 

I hope to propel my career in the design space and expanding my understanding of Metaverse and NFT.

 

I'm a self-taught Product Designer with 4 years of industry experience, and have learnt a lot of the processes, concepts, UX and UI literature and product design through attending the workshop, reading blogs, communicating with professionals and leaders.

And, have applied these experiences to the projects I created during the Design competitions, Hackathons, Freelance projects and in personal projects.


With my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Technology and combining this with my design knowledge - I have handled critical projects, from ideation to all the way to development and successful releases.

Outside of digital design, I love working with Unreal Engine and Blender to create 
3D experiences external-link
 

Combining these solo efforts with my passion for experimentation with new technology, I managed to create and publish Unreal Engine's first Augmented Reality(AR) app on Google Playstore external-link
 

I have also won Unreal's Summer GameJam by leading a team of 3 creators in publishing the Virtual Reality (VR) app in under 48 hours.

When I am not designing or creating 3D experiences, I spend my time 
writing articles external-link, meeting new people and, of course, playing soccer.

Testimonials

We came into contact by chance because I was about to revise a user interface. I looked at Ankit's portfolio and thought I'd have to get in touch with him.

Although I had never been in contact with him before, he was immediately very courteous and friendly, gave me good tips and made several GUI design suggestions.

He fully convinced me with his work and humanly he is simply outstanding, the communication with him was great. I will probably contact him again when I need a GUI design, he lets his creativity run free without losing sight of the client's goal and vision.
