My name is Ashwin Mohan. I'm a UX & Systems Designer with a Master of Science degree in Transportation Systems and Design, from Art Center College of Design. I also have a background in Industrial Design. My career as creative professional began at a very young age. Growing up, I had a natural inclination towards Art & Craft, and I was always encouraged to expand my creativity and find purpose. This lead me to discover and pursue design.
Today, I’m obsessed about creating holistic, future-focused, and meaningful experiences to empower people. I'm deeply motivated by complex and challenging contexts that exist today, and speculations of the future. Through my years of education & training, I've developed a strong belief in design that inspires optimism and respects humanity. My goal in life is to design experiences with passion, strongly guided by my belief and motive; within the purview of mobility, transportation, and adjacent fields.
I love being challenged to step out of my comfort zone. This was a time that made me realize the rewards of that.
