Shailee Advani

Nationality: Indian
Area of expertise: Product Design, User Experience Design.

Shailee graduated from the National Institute of Design with a B.Des in Product Design. After her graduation, she joined Samsung R & D, Bangalore, where she had the opportunity to work on a range of projects – from imagining ways to inject emotion into mobile experiences to devising innovative uses for exciting new hardware and technology.

For the past two years, she has been working with a Hong Kong based IOT startup. Her role here as Lead Designer requires her to have a keen understanding of user requirements and to identify the most intuitive ways to deliver digital experiences to end users.

Shailee’s larger interest lies in dissecting experiences to really understand what makes them delightful, funny, confusing or unpleasant to end users and how we, as designers, can control these factors to make products better. She is also interested in understanding the emotional, social and environmental impact of products and services in the long run.

Shailee loves animals and is fascinated by outer space and fungi. In her free time, she likes to learn new crafts (the latest being stained glass), read, garden and practice yoga.
