Design Copilot

How did you get to where you are today in the designer world?

By being curious about learning new things and working hard to improve them.

What is your best strategy for tackling a project or challenge?

As a copilot, I am looking to understand what the client’s problem is, ask questions to clarify the details so I can translate it as much as possible for designers, provide them with additional materials they need, and make things easy for them so they only focus on designing.

How do you keep up with current trends and advances in this field?

I read various online design and tech magazines and check the work of other designers on Behance, Dribbble, etc.

What are you most looking forward to for the TCO Finals?

Meeting the Topcoder friends and admins. It’s always fun and a great time! Best part of TCO πŸ™‚

Tell us what achievement you are the most proud of.

Being part of the Community Team and attending several TCOs in different roles.

If you wrote your own designer profile, what would it say?

Dream for the best and work for it.

Offline, what is your favorite thing to do?

Spending time with dear ones.
