About Pic-min.png

I'm Sonali Chellappa.

I’m a UX and product designer with over 4 years of professional experience. I’m fascinated by the granularity and strategic thinking inherent in creating user-friendly experiences.

I studied Cognitive Science and Human-Computer Interaction at UC Irvine. Drawing from my background in human behavior and cognition, my work revolves around addressing the core needs of my users.

I’m passionate about using my experience to help others pursuing design. During my time at UC Irvine, I took on leadership roles in the two largest engineering and design organizations, Commit the Change and Design at UCI, where I mentored aspiring designers .


When I’m not pushing pixels, you’ll find me practicing my kickflip, scouring Facebook Marketplace for rare houseplants, or trying to make a perfectly ergonomic coffee mug.

Other Fun Stuff

In the summer of 2022, I signed up for a 6-week pottery class on a whim. Since then, making pottery has become my favorite pastime!

When playing with mud doesn't scratch my creative itch, doodling and painting does! Lately I've been making miniature art pieces, which are each 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size.
