“Priyank is my favorite UX designers and one of the few out of the box thinkers I have come across. I have had the privilege of working with him at Vodafone and was very impressed with his eye for detail and energy levels. Not only is he passionate about designing but many a times goes out of his way to support agencies breakaway from clutter, supports struggling colleagues and bosses. Needless to say he is outstanding at his work and everything he touches transforms to gold, be it Sony LIV or Hotstar. One of my best team mates and a Digital Marketer with a vision, I will always wish the best for you.”

Hemangi Dholakia, ValuED Online Service

“We at ValuED are very lucky to have stumbled across Priyank when we were desperately looking for a UX designer. Priyank delivered within the strict timelines and the shortage of time did not affect the quality of work at all. Priyank is extremely professional, grasps the context very well, delivers on time and is an articulate soft spoken person. Priyank not only completed the UX, he also helped with the UI bit. The turnaround time was amazing. We shall definitely continue working with Priyank in the future. If you want a quality product which looks good and works well, Priyank is your go to person.”

“Priyank is a brilliant and extremely driven individual, constantly learning and growing. He was a part of my Product Team at hotstar, leading the UX activities. He is one of the best UX Designers in the industry. He is a through and through strategic thinker and has a great grasp on what makes users tick. He is a great team player and works towards growing himself and his team constantly. He is an asset to any organisation he is a part of and takes product design and thinking to a completely different level. His enormous industry experience and insights are one of a kind and tough to find. I would work with him again anytime and strongly recommend him.”

“A perfect blend of knowledge in technology and designing. He understands the requirement in such depth which helps you to get a perfect output that meets your expectation. Fun person to be with, which makes work exciting and interesting. Would love to work with him again.”

“Priyank has worked with me closely on media and entertainment category where each advertiser needs are a customised solution. He has helped execute many campaigns which are a last minute rush, not just ensuring no loss to the revenue but also seamless execution. He is also very professional in terms of setting expectations both with advertiser as well as team internally.”

“When I searched for a freelancer online to help me with web design, I saw very few quality designers from India. I stumbled across Priyank’s portfolio and then thought, “This guy is experienced and has an impressive portfolio. Why not give him a call?” and that’s how it started.

Priyank is very professional in his approach towards his clients. He is always available; a basic quality I found missing in other freelancers. He promptly answers your calls and responds to your messages. He is receptive to constructive criticism and makes changes according to our requirement. He is creative and is gifted with a good artistic hand. You can see for yourself when we go live.

I am happy that Priyank worked as a good teammate and met our deadline. He is going to be a good bet if you want your work done on time. I didn’t have much problem right from negotiation of terms to project delivery. Looking forward to work with Priyank again!”

“When Priyank approached me to write a testimonial after the completion of work he had done for me on my websites, I said, “Boy you’re asking for trouble now”. But the fact of the matter is that Priyank has done such an awesome job with my websites that it needs to be mentioned in the same breath as WOW. He was up to the task and I knew that from day one. His suggestions and eye for designing is simply amazing. Completely chilled out and fun to work with. Trust me (if you’re still reading this and not fallen off to sleep already) this guy can grasp and understand what the client needs and will deliver it the way you want it and when you want it. All the very best Priyank.”

“I came across this website trancehub.com and was so impressed with its design, I ended up hunting for its designer who happened to be Priyank. Absolutely passionate and motivated when it comes to designing, always ready with new ideas and always hungry to learn and try something new. This guy wont compromise a single pixel when it comes to quality and perfection. He is not the usual 9am - 5pm designer, takes complete ownership of the project and never shy to speak his mind. It’s so much fun to work with Priyank because of his fantastic attitude, bucket loads of passion and endless creative ideas, pushes the best out of me too!”

Suresh Arora, King Kaveri Trading Company

“We at KKTC are very thankful to you for creating our interactive website. It is not only important that the website is created and thereafter the way you take care of this and even at the shortest notice the way you provide support needs further appreciation. We feel you can really read MINDS directly, grasp expectation and deliver in line with even our mission statement - We Create, We Imagine and We Create... even you are so. Keep it up and keep growing!!! Wish you all the best!”

Vijay Iyer, Amazon

“Priyank arrived at Yahoo! India at a time when rich media solutions required to roll out in unprecented quality and at an almost impossible speed. While the talent was there for all to see, the tall, smiling and extremely soft spoken persona also had a performer I have rarely seen on the internet. Creative execution needs talent and skill for sure - but also having a natural gift is extremely rare. Priyank has all the three - he has created some awe inspiring creatives in Yahoo! and I am sure there is a lot more to come from him in the future.

PS: Priyank works best with trance music playing :) ”

Navdeep Singh Dhanjal, Analog Devices

“I have known Priyank even before he started drawing, highly influenced by his dad’s creative skills, Priyank started young and was a gifted child. We often used to discuss and critic the ideas we had. He is very passionate about what he does, and if you think you are going to compete with him, then I might warn you that the outcome won’t be very good for your ego :)”

Kamlesh Mehta, Coffee Digital

“Priyank has good expertise in web design and flash. He is versatile with latest web techniques. He can achieve good heights in his career. As my colleague in Tribal, he shared many good technical ides with me. He is a good project leader and will be a talented project manager in future. I wish him all success.”

“Priyank introduces unique concepts into graphic designing. He understands the vision of the client and is totally no-fuss. Very quick and professional he truly delivers.”

Karl Gomes, Fanatics

“Priyank started working with us as a freelance consultant. His relaxed mindset and knowledge of design, programming, technology, speed and attention to detail made him a pleasure to work with and got him a full time employee status. At his age he's super knowledgeable in just about every design software, a fast learner and very well equiped to handle the interactive space. I highly recomend his design, passion and dedication to the interactive space and would love to work with him again.”
