I had the good fortune of hiring designers, mentoring them and building the design team at Unacademy, an ed-tech startup that's now valued over $3.4 billion. The products designed by my team and I are used by millions of students and thousands of educators. It has helped Unacademy grow & raise investment from global investors like SoftBank, Sequoia Capital, Facebook, General Atlantic etc. However, something was still missing. In conversations with experienced designers in my network, we all agreed on a common problem: the state of design education in India was broken.
