About

Ankit My name is Ankit Raj Gupta. I am a Toronto based UX Designer. I design and code user experiences for web and mobile devices. I have almost four years of experience in designing, ideating and prototyping digital products. I find executing my ideas by coding user interfaces to be a hugely rewarding exercise, which also allows me to communicate my process with the development team far more effectively.

  • At OakNorth, I worked with a team of data scientists, and my role involved creating user interfaces and data visualization for them.
  • I also worked with small startups where I occupied an overlapping role involving UI design and front-end development.
