Hello, I'm Harshana,

a UI/UX designer with a background in software development & project management.

My Journey

I embarked on my professional journey as a Web Designer and gradually advanced through roles such as Associate Software Engineer, Java Web Application Developer, Back-end Software Engineer, and eventually, as a Project Manager. However, at a certain point in my career, I felt the need to leverage my creative skills and shift my focus towards customer-centered products and services, adding elegance and beauty. As a Project Manager, I had full control over managing entire projects. This realization prompted me to enhance my skill set in UI/UX Designing. I worked diligently, acquiring the necessary knowledge, practical experience, and certifications to become an expert in UI/UX Designing. This allowed me to concentrate on defining user journeys, creating visually appealing interfaces, and developing engaging user experiences. The ability to apply my creativity in this field has brought a new sense of fulfillment to my professional life, and I eagerly anticipate further growth in this area.
