I’m Rasagy Sharma, and I’m an Information Designer with a focus on making data-heavy products easier & engaging to use. Currently, I’m helping build Sundial to enable teams to discover the story in their product data.

For the last decade, I’ve worked at the intersection of data & design. Before Sundial, I worked as a Principal Information Designer at Gramener , where I led the design practice, managed the small 10-member design team, applied data storytelling to business problems & facilitated collaboration between clients, designers & developers.

Earlier, I designed maps & data quality tools in the Cartography & Data team at Mapbox , built financial innovation products for Africa as part of the Design & Digital Office at Barclays India and was the first designer at Capillary Tech . I also helped kickstart the Information Design Lab at IDC, IIT Bombay as a Research Assistant, and interned with the Cloud & Enterprise and Bing Sports team at Microsoft India . You can read more about my career path on LinkedIn .

I have a M.Des. in Information & Interface Design from NID, Bangalore and a B.E. (Hons.) in Computer Science Engineering from BITS Pilani, Goa Campus .

In my free time, I love to sketchnote talks , create art using data & code , support design communities through speaking, teaching & volunteering, and ramble about design on Twitter .

Colophon

This site is built from scratch using Hugo — a static site generator built in Go, hand crafted by me after hours of painful persistent tweaking made possible through Tachyons . It is hosted via Github Pages .

It is set in the modernist sans-serif typeface Satoshi by Deni Anggara from Indonesia, and the elegant serif typeface Sentient by Noopur Choksi from India & a fellow NID alumnus. The fonts are served through Fontshare , a privacy-focused font service by Indian Type Foundry (ITF) .

The layout is inspired by the minimal, functional layouts of International Typographic Style & terribly implemented till I can learn CSS grids.
