Priyanka is a designer interested in the intersection of cultural practice and technology development. With a background in interaction and industrial design, her focus lies around how to build digital products for people and their environments by using a human-centred approach. She has 4 years of experience working and living in Oslo, Copenhagen, Sweden, Taiwan and India. She has worked on a variety of projects, from ethnographic research, design and development for emerging markets with Nokia to designing the future of play with LEGO. More recently, she has worked on designing experiences with data, with Cisco Systems, Norway. She has been a mentor at Fintech Factory, Oslo and the Srishti school of art, design and technology.
She has a hands on approach to her design process and loves to experiment with new ideas and technologies. She co-founded a start-up in April 2014 to learn about start-up cultures and the intersection between design and business. She also experiments with music, sketching and otherwise helps in art production for an Indian independent filmmaker. She loves to travel because she believes travelling is a great way of learning about the world. It is an antidote to ignorance and the best teacher on learning how to listen.
