[E08] Rahul Chakraborty — Sr. Product Designer, Swiggy

Rahul Chakraborty is a Senior Product Designer at Swiggy who previously worked at companies like Flipkart and Headout. Rahul is also a great photographer who consistently shares his pictures with the world on Unsplash and he's as involved as anyone can ever be in every design related community and conversation. In this episode we talk about his journey as a designer, his early influences, the difference in work between a junior designer, a senior designer and a lead designer, how a junior designer can take up more projects than what he/she is responsible for to build leverage and grow as a designer, what are some things that Rahul and his team are working at Swiggy to decrease the decision paralysis caused by too many available options, his journey of actively participating in design conversations and being active in the community and some tips for people starting out as product designers. In the "Make The Logo Bigger" section of this episode, Rahul spoke about the problem of having too many opinions on your work and how to effectively give and receive feedback and the importance of feedback. Stay tuned till the end to learn why his website is called "dsintheta.com" and definitely check out his design experiments on Instagram @madebyrahul and also follow him @hckmstrrahul to keep yourself updated about the new things in the design community.
