Some Kind Words

Recommendations and experiences shared by my past and existing employers as well as clients! 
Moritz Putzhammer
Co-Founder & CEO of Trality
Vienna, Austria
"Worked with Kay for 3 years and i couldn't have wished for a better graphic-designer, product-designer, sparring partner and team member in general. He was always there when you needed him and designed very creatively while also precisely. It didn't take Kay long until he completely understood the company's goals and vision and helped shape it with his creative approach to design. Lastly Kay worked extremely well-structured and managed to always deliver on time."
Laurin Stahl
Former Head of Product at Trality
Berlin, Germany
"I had the opportunity to work with Karan when he was the lead product designer at Trality. He was instrumental in reaching our objective to implement a scalable design-system for mobile and desktop that ultimately allowed us to ship product faster than ever-before. I was especially impressed with Karan in how he was able to deal with ambiguity. He is able to put himself into the shoes of the customer and based on that ask challenging questions that will bring everyone's understanding of the problem we're trying to solve forward. Karan always stays professional and explains his ideas and standpoint based on facts, data, or assumptions and is a very pleasant individual to work with, solution-oriented, friendly, and driven."
Jatin Solanki
Founder & CEO of Decube
Malaysia
"Karan’s exceptional abilities as a product designer are truly unmatched. His profound understanding of both business requirements and end-user needs serves as the foundation of his ingenious designs. His work is characterized by a unique blend of aesthetic appeal, functionality, and user-friendliness that is rarely seen in the industry. Karan’s holistic approach to product design, that embraces the interconnection of business strategy, user experience, and technical feasibility, sets him apart in the field."
Harlaksh Singh
Former Employer & Entrepreneur
Mumbai, India
"Karan's a thoughtful creator that cares deeply about what he works on. During our time together, he was a friend I could share my thoughts with (in and outside his role), a voracious learner always updating his skills, was opinionated but never shy from receiving feedback, was always up for a new challenge, mentored interns well, coordinated with other team members & clients with thorough professionalism."
