Hi, it's Harini

I'm a UX/Visual designer based in Austin, Texas.
My work tells stories, inspires dreams and brings ideas to life through collaboration and inspiration. I aim to combine my communication background with my design skills to create and develop meaningful products. 

I am looking for my next role in UX/UI/Product design anywhere in the United States or Canada, where I can showcase my design, research and accessibility expertise.

Harini Venkataraman grew up in 2 countries, learnt over 5 languages and about 10 different art forms before she found the extraordinary world of design, which she discovered from her love for stories and visual interpretations of all kinds.

In addition to being a designer, Harini is also a classical dancer, author and poet, whose written work has been published in various places. Her passion for stories
led her to interpretative dance, fiction, screenplay writing, and eventually, to visual narration in the form of graphic design.

Harini's work celebrates the idea that behind every project lies a potential, human-centered perspective that drives the whole concept forwards and contributes to the success of the design. 

Austin, Texas
