About

TL, DR

I am Sandeep Tripathy, a product designer. I design interfaces, interactions, and interfaces mostly for digital platforms. While designing, I try to keep in mind a blend of industry trends, art, creativity, and most importantly user needs and requirements.

Presently I am working full-time at HCL Technologies – a leading Indian IT services company.

The Complete Story

My interest in the tech sector, especially designing digital products is something that started in my childhood. Every single electronic product or software that I used – I would try to understand how it truly worked. I started tinkering around with tech when I was around 11. I taught myself how I can animate in 2D using Macromedia Flash, how I can build a webpage using HTML. I still recall my excitement when I built my first website at the 15.

It wasn’t long before I launched my first blog called Axetue in 2010 where I started writing about everything that I had learned and would learn in tech mostly related to web design & programming. In the years to come, Axetue became my canvas where I would express everything I would teach myself, mostly in the form of tutorials, insights, and reviews. This led me to build many other web apps and websites in the years to come.

Thoughtpad by Sandeep Tripathy featured at Product Hunt

I designed and launched ThoughtPad in 2016 after I couldn’t find a simple note-taking app that would respect users’ privacy. Subsequently, it got featured on Product Hunt. This followed with a Chrome extension and other helpful features which once against made it to the featured list on Product Hunt.

Over time, I worked with several influential brands (IBM, Delhi Airport) as well as multiple startups, and small businesses trying to design products that could impact in a positive way.
