Heartbeat Design ❤️

I design with the user’s heartbeat at the core.

Hello 👋
I am Reshika

A passionate about Digital Designer based in Italy, with the mission of bridging the gap between Users and Technology. 

From a young age, I have been captivated by the power of visual communication and its profound impact on people. As a little girl, I knew nothing of “Product Designing” or “UI/UX”—my world was defined by the simple joys of Microsoft Paint. 🖌

While studying Communication Technology, I discovered the concept of “Web Designing,” and it was love at first sight. My unique fusion of Mediterranean and Asian heritage brings a diverse vision and a fresh perspective to my design work, allowing me to approach challenges from different angles and create innovative solutions.
