The story of how the item-listing of Swiggy Daily was designed

I recently completed a year at Swiggy. In this one year, I have done all kinds of jobs, right from shooting pictures for Instagram to crafting a whole new app from the scratch (yup, you heard that right). On my day-3, I was told that my first project will be something completely new and different. So different that it will not even be on the Swiggy App, to start with 😂

So there I began the exhilarating journey of designing Swiggy Daily, a brand new app from the celebrated house of Swiggy. The interesting thing about Daily is that, unlike Swiggy, there are no restaurants on it. …

Getting started with UX Choreography

As a motion enthusiast, there is one question that I have been asked the most:

“How do I start with Motion Design?”

To this, I often reply savagely, “You start with Physics”; scaring away most of the seekers 😂 But here is the thing — someone who is genuinely interested never stops with a single query. They follow up with questions after questions after questions. I love them! ❤️

Every week, I have slots blocked on my calendar only for the purpose of mentoring such enthusiastic people. I either meet them in person (if they are around Bangalore, India) or speak to them over the internet. …

This is the 3rd and final part of the series on Isometric Illustrations. Do read the Part 1 and Part 2 as well if you haven’t already.

When I started writing the first post on Isometric Illustrations, I just thought of sharing how I overcame the fear of creating visual compositions. Thanks for motivating me to write more 🙌.

No tutorial is ever complete unless the reader feels accomplished at the results achieved from it. I know that it takes a little more than just a simple cube or a cylinder to get that feeling. So here I m back (as promised) with the 3rd and final part of this series on Isometric Illustrations. …

This is an extension of my previous post, How I became an Illustrator by discovering a new dimension

Illustration is a form of art which comes naturally to some, and for the remaining like me, it can be a total nightmare! There used to be a time when I would hesitate to list ‘illustration’ in my list of skills. But things got better over time. Luckily, I managed to understand the science behind this essential art, and today I not only have ‘illustration’ in my list, but also the beautiful word ‘isometric’ prefixed to that 😃

That’s my Dribbble Playbook profile

In the Part 1 of this series, I have listed a detailed step-by-step tutorial for creating Isometric Illustrations using the 2D illustration tool, Adobe Illustrator. By scaling, shearing and rotating the orthographic projections of an object, we can mimic their isometric counterparts. …

I never studied design. I am an Engineer, that too a nerdy one from one of the badass schools in India. Contrary to the stereotypes which tag engineers as monotonous and boring, my profession has the creative side to it. I am a Product Designer working for Zeta.

While I have a decent sense of visuals (I mean, I know which pair of shoes to wear with which T-Shirt etc. 😂 ), I am more of an interaction designer, i.e. the guy who brainstorms, builds product features, creates UI flows, analyses user behaviour etc.

Well, I do illustrate when I need to, but I haven’t reached the level where I can stretch my neck and call myself an — ‘Illustrator’ (I am improving). …
