About Akshay Chandra

3 Continents, 7 Cities and 5 Industries – all these fascinating experiences have led me to realize how much I love designing experiences. There’s nothing more exciting to me than building powerful user experiences that derive simplicity from complexity, absolutely WOW people, and capture their imagination.

When I’m not working, I train for triathlons, and spend time connecting with nature and my ‘inner self’. Triathlons help me overcome my inner limitations and discipline the mind to go above and beyond what I think possible.

What really gives me a kick is designing large, strategic service design engagements – looking at the various complex components of an ecosystem and synthesizing them into a seamless, uninterrupted whole.

I love meeting new people and exchanging great ideas – so please do say hello and let’s work on some awesome things together!
