Abhishek has been a thought leader of the Internet since its commercialization 25 years ago. As a digital visionary and enthusiast, he has been solving design problems for start-ups as well as in large corporations like the London Stock Exchange Group, NTT Data and Barclays, across a variety of industries like Retail, Telecom and FinTech.
In his new role as intive’s Chief Design Officer, Abhishek will empower intive to set novel standards for digital experiences. “My credo is that true user-centricity arises from systematic design judgement and a long-term perspective – we need to take into account the whole system including user needs, business requirements and technology opportunities and boundaries,” Abhishek summarizes. This will enable intive’s clients to sustainably transform their businesses and solve real-world problems by ‘making something beautiful, easier or possible’ (Dan Saffer). “I joined intive, because I feel inspired by the firm’s culture of driving growth both in and outside of the comfort zone. I believe that innovation emerges, where the unknown meets the known - and intive’s culture is much in line with my personal preference of thoughtful exploration,” he adds.
Relying on a team of nearly 3000 digital enthusiasts, operating 6 dedicated design studios across the globe, and winning six prestigious design awards between 2019 and 2021 for customers such as BASF, Seven.One Media and Vorwerk, intive is in a prime position to be a catalyst of unique customer experiences for its blue-chip clients and further propel hyper-growth (Design awards include: Red Dot Design Award 2019, 2020, UX Design Award 2019, 2020, iF Design Award 2020, 2021). In 2021, intive grew by nearly 50 percent and its hypergrowth trajectory has been driven by the firm capability to design people-centric products, making exciting user experience the north star of their advisory, design and engineering work.
