Akshan Ish


Designer @ IDEO in Munich. Currently a resident @ La Victoria Lab in Lima.


Designer as in researcher, storyteller, data enthusiast, systems thinker, strategist, consultant and team player. I apply these skills to create digital products, services and businesses rooted in human-centered insight for organisations in various industries.


I’m interested in addressing larger societal challenges, especially those faced by governments in delivering citizen-centric services. Often, I also find myself working through the ambiguity of nation-states, and critically speculating the use of design and technology to create social change through provocations.


Sometimes, I play with different tools to create images. But more often, I travel and capture stories.
