Nikash SINGH

Nikash SINGH

I'm obsessed with Design of all types, including Visual Communication (including Photography, Desktop Publishing and Graphic Design), Identity (Branding and Services Design), Spatial and Experiential domains (Architecture, Planning, Interior and Installation Design, UX), Form (Industrial Design and Packaging), Information Design (Data modelling and Information Visualisation) and Digital (User Interface and WebDesign).

My interest in Design as a process goes beyond the broad domains, into the techniques, methodologies and critical thinking that occurs at the heart of all Design activity. This desire to understand, to a greater extent, the power of Design to illicit specific and intentional emotions and reactions has led me to pursue a PhD in User Interface Design at the University of Sydney.

  • Primary occupation:
    Seniour UX Consultant and PhD candidate

  • Interests:
    Everything from Drawing to Engineering
