TESTIMONIALS

someone

Balaji RamamurthyProduct Manager(Mobile), Practo

“First of all, I would not recommend Bhaumik as just a designer. He is much more than that. Over the span of 5 years and 3 awesome product startups, I’ve worked with many designers. There are designers who just throw out assets per specifications and there are product designers who end up being invaluable assets to the team thanks to their exceptional understanding of the product. Bhaumik falls into this much valued second category of product designers, a true sidekick for any product manager out there. Speaking from my experience and work with him, he’s a very quick learner and extremely knowledgeable with design patterns on the major mobile platforms of today. He’s a very good listener, a quality that helps him understand the problem statement in the very first go. He has a knack of asking very good questions, something that proved priceless during our various product brainstorming sessions. Add to this quick design turnaround time and quality output, we were able to completely revamp an average app into an app that delivers kickass user experience, all in the space of three months! The app is receiving great reviews from our users who are delighted with the brand new experience – something which has his touch everywhere. Great product acumen combined with top of the line design chops, I would strongly recommend Bhaumik to anyone who is looking to work with a true product designer. I truly hope that we get to team up again in the future.
