Hi! I'm Ishaan!

Product Designer



I am a Designer majoring in Computer Science at The University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. I try to use my creative vision mixed with my technical knowledge and the amazing works that I have seen in my life to design and build better products and features for the users. I started designing almost 3 years ago and have been working on projects either my own ideas or through internships ever since. I recently spent a summer designing for the Design Tools team at Facebook. I have also previously worked at Pinterest where I was part of the Content Creation and Core Experience teams. 

I like to keep challenging myself as I believe that it's the best way to grow not just your skills but your personality as well. I strive to solve tough problems and create intuitive and beautiful products for people and try and make an impact on them however I can!

Apart from designing, I usually spend my time taking part in campus activities through Alpha Phi Omega, a national service fraternity. I am currently serving as the Vice President of Service for their UIUC Chapter. I am also a big TV Show fan and some of my favorites include Game of Thrones, The Newsroom, and Friends. I also love photography and you can see my collection @ishaankansal12 on Instagram.
