About me

Hemanth Sharma

Welcome to my personal-professional website. I am a Musician by heart, but a Designer by profession or you can call me a design enthusiast with over two decades of experience under my belt. Yep, I've been around the design block for a while. I've tinkered with UX, web development, game design/development, public speaking, building products, heading teams and pretty much everything design-related.

Currently, I focus on design strategy, hands-on UX/Web design, storytelling, brand and product vision, hiring and mentoring design teams.

I love making things look good and work even better. From wireframes to polished mockups, I've had my hand in plenty of projects. Oh, and I've got a soft spot for mentoring new UX Designers – it's my way of giving back to the creative community.

What I do

I enjoy turning ideas into visual wonders, whether it's Graphic Design, Logo/Brand Design, or playing with design tools. It's a journey, not a job, and I'm here to share the ride and continue my learning. Join me, and let's make some cool stuff together!

  • I am a Co-founder and Design Director of a design agency/studio - Design Brained Studio, with a small team of artist-designer-illustrator-developers. We work on anything and everything related to digital design, may it be logo/brand design, web design/development, UX/UI design, or print design, video production, etc. If you are looking for a design agency, get in touch here with our team.
  • I run a Video Podcast (Design Talks with Hemanth) inviting industry experts on various subdomains of design and have elaborate discussions on the subject.
  • I run my YouTube channel to give it back to the community with my tips and video tutorials.
  • I am available for 1:1 consultation for advice/mentorship on design, career, resume/profile building, portfolio review, etc. on Topmate.
