Hello, I’m Malavika /maal-vika /

An M.Des student at CMU, knee-deep in my exploration of designing for emerging technologies. 

The no frills version:

I’m a communication designer turned UX professional who worked in cross-functional teams, designing B2B UX at Wongdoody.

I believe that the turning points of my career so far follow this logic:

Learning to communicate

I realized

Importance of experience

Designing Experiences

Importance of interactions

An all-frills version


Snippets from Bangalore

I’m a multi-cultural Indian from Bangalore, a city known for it’s startup culture, filter coffee, and traffic. Besides the occasional identity crisis, I can speak 5 different languages, and love exploring my culture through cooking and documenting food.


When I'm not scribbling on post-its or dusting pixels into place, I like to bake, read, and write. My year compass goals include reading a book a month. Here's what I'm reading so far.


Undergraduate Study

I graduated with a B.Des in communication Design from PES University in Bangalore. I took up multiple internships through college doing graphic design work, before moving onto a full-time experience design position at Wongdoody.



I also taught graphic design and brand communication to semester 4 students at my alma mater. Teaching in-turn taught me to be a patient listener and provide constructive, unobtrusive feedback.
