Devika Ganapathy

“In addition to a great design sensibility, Deepak is a very approachable and collaborative designer.

I have enjoyed working with him over the years – I first worked with him, as a colleague at Yahoo! and most recently during a research conference (RoohSearch 2023) that was put together as a voluntary effort to strengthen and energize the user research community in India.

Despite being busy with his own new venture Stoodio Iterati, Deepak chipped in on coming up with an amazing name for the conference, as well as creating a design language and logo. In addition, he managed the effort to create a conference website. And all this was completed in an aggressive timeline of 2 weeks!

While we were blown away by his creativity, what stood out was his calm and assured manner of working with a rather chaotic set of volunteers and an aggressive timeline.”
