I am Harsha Vardhan, an Interaction and product designer based in London. Currently, I am part of Ustwo Studio ltd, as the Auto & Mobility design lead and co-founder of the automotive practise within the studio.
My team and I are working on technology and service projects with major automotive clients, research efforts within the studio and with Universities such as UCL and we also write our own thought pieces - the most recent one being on 'Humanising Autonomy' which I co-wrote and released at the end of 2017. I was also a co-founder and designer with WhatTheFood, between 2014-2016. We were working on creating services within the food tech space - building products to make food at restaurants more approachable and their dietary information more transparent. Previously I have also designed and developed my own software project (2012-13) - Persona, a suite of easy to use email clients for iOS and Mac. Before moving to London I have worked with Service Innovation Labs in Berlin (2012-13), helping develop urban mobility systems of the future - for the populace in major cities and for automotive manufacturers. I am an alumnus of the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction design (2011) and the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi with Masters in Interaction design, Industrial design with a background in Mechanical Engineering (Bachelors)
