Hi! My name is Shivanjali Tomar and I currently work as an interaction design lead at Method's San Francisco studio.
In the last 10 years, I have had the opportunity to work as an industrial and an interaction designer with some of the best design teams in the industry. Having experienced different cultures around the world, looking at a problem from multiple perspectives has become my second nature. My flexibility to work across digital and physical platforms stems from my fluency with a wide range of tools that I am constantly adding to.
Currently I am fascinated with interactive narratives using tangible mediums.
