Hello! नमस्ते! ନମସ୍କାର!

I am Nikita Nayak,  a diligent, hardworking,  globetrotting User Experience Design professional with a passion for research.

I hail from the beautiful temple city of Bhubaneswar, in the state of Odisha, India.

Currently, I work as a User Experience Designer at Deloitte Digital Studio, Mumbai. This a creative consultancy agency that helps clients future proof their businesses.

I was the valedictorian of the Class of 2016, graduating summa cum laude in my Bachelor of Design, Communication Design – User Experience Design, from Symbiosis Institute of Design, part of Symbiosis International University.

I can converse in two classical languages: Odia and Sanskrit. So, I chose to call my website parikalpakah. It is a Sanskrit word defined as “To imagine and design something logically with for a purpose.”  Hence, I chose to name my website this to reflect that philosophy.

I love to immerse myself in different cultures and so far I have travelled to 17 countries and still counting.

Check out my portfolio and résumé.
