Hi, I’m Akash. I help turn business ideas into delightful products, fast and profitably.
Long meetings and ever-changing project goals drain the time, money and motivation of product teams who want to solve a real problem for their customer.
I am a Sydney-based product design consultant, most recently having worked as a UX Designer in the growth wings of Scentre Group and Deputy. I want to help socially and environmentally innovative ideas solve problems for their target market fast and at minimum cost.
Book a free 45-min call with me where we (you and I) take any high-level problem and turn it into actionable solutions.

I create the right balance between business metrics and user delight.

01 Structure brings focus to brainstorms

I shortcut the endless-debate cycle and compress months of time into a 5-day process that's flexible and repeatable.

02 Customer = business

I focus on finding out why your customer loves your product as that is key to a profitable business.

03 Solve as a team

I love involving the team along the way. I know developers don't talk about it much but they love seeing someone outside their office using their product. The same goes for everyone in the business including me.

A Design Sprint process by AJ&Smart to ensure success while still respecting everybody's time.

What is a Design sprint?

Design Sprints are the fastest way to find out if a product is worth developing, if a feature is worth the effort, or if your value proposition is really valid.

It compresses potentially months of work into 3-4 weeks. Inspired by AJ&Smart, I facilitate a 4-day sprint which is pre-empted with research and finished up with a shorter iteration sprint and a wrap up week.

What you get by the end

The output and outcome of every Design Sprint is a high-fidelity interactive prototype, tested by real users, and with clear insights on where to go next. This is not a “wireframe” or a “paper prototype”, it looks and feels like a real product.

PS: I have been lucky to work with amazing UI and graphic designers available to help if your team currently doesn't consist of UI designers who can realise the prototype.
