Vishal Mehta

UX Designer

Cupertino, CA, USA
Motivated by passion, driven by great design.

What motivates me is the opportunity to design user interfaces and make them beautiful to look at, simple to use and efficient for completing tasks. My combined 15 years of experience at different companies and as an entrepreneur has taught me a lot about design, technology, and, most importantly, user behavior. I have been the user advocate wherever I go; the interfaces I’ve designed – both enterprise and consumer, have gone above and beyond client expectations.
