Manikanth Challa

Hello! I’m a Penn State Alumni and an User Experience Designer. I love designing things, solving problems and interacting with people. I’ve worked with different companies in the United States and India. I place myself in the users shoes to consider what they love and what they want from a product. My passion is to help clients transform information into visual products that make people communicate effectively and happily.

Theatre is an outlet where I use the fundamental elements of understanding user persona, interacting with people and providing the right solution to a problem. What keeps me going everyday is to create a better user-experience and provide solutions through thoughtful ideas and designs.

User Testing

 

The key to designing great user experience is empathy. Every single detail matters. Every day we interact with objects that make our lives easy and people that make us happy. My goal is to create the same feeling to people through my designs. I start by collecting different assets, understanding the essence of the project and compiling all the information into different categories and priorities. It’s the multiple iterations on paper that help me find the best user flow and design patterns for the product.

The iterations then lead to well-defined high-fidelity designs which would be the end users vision. The most important part of the process is seeing how the users interact with different products and to get feedback from them.
