I am Manjari Sahu, a UX and Service Designer at VanBerlo, The Hague.
An Interaction Design graduate from Carnegie Mellon University, I bring a mix of Industrial and Service design tools and methods to design teams and projects. Having lived and worked in India, the USA, and the Netherlands, I enjoy working in multi-cultural teams that bring a healthy mix of curiosity, values, and empathy to any project.
Learning how design & technology is transforming our interactions & experiences around healthcare, education and government systems, I aim to create valuable experiences for users that span across digital, physical and environmental realms.
My past work involves working for retail brands in India, design wayfinding and transport services for smart cities with the Indian Government and working in healthcare service systems and research with Philips Respironics, Pittsburgh.
My favorite design processes? People research, service blueprinting and collaborative workshops! Drop me a line on firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to talk about design, cats or books.
