About Karthik

Karthik Rao

A pragmatic designer with an entrepreneurial spirit.

As a designer, I have come a long way from a teenager making cringe-worthy desktop wallpapers to a professional who prides himself on solving challenging problems by combining user-centered design with technology.

Whether I'm working on an enterprise product or on a self-initiated side project, I leverage my background in engineering and design to analyze problems holistically and craft solutions that meet user goals while being technically feasible.

My aim is to build products that have a positive impact on the lives of millions of people around the world.
