Adit Gupta

Hey there 👋 Thanks for stopping by my design blog. My name is Adit, and I'm a senior design manager at ServiceNow with a Master's degree in Philosophy (something different, right? 🤓).

When I'm not designing products, I indulge my inner philosopher by running a blog on Indian philosophy.

My journey began as a technology evangelist and python developer, but it was my deep interest in mapping user needs to interfaces that ultimately led me to pursue a career in design. Over the past 11 years, I have had the privilege of working on a wide range of projects across various industries, including education, travel, payments, retail, customer experience, finance, and health. I hope you enjoy my blog and find value in my insights and experiences.
