Nad Chishtie

I build value by design.

Design, Product, Leadership

I'm a designer, technologist, and cross-functional leader based in London.

I'm VP Design at Element & Matrix, and I have limited availability as a fractional product & design partner.

I'm fascinated by designing design, auteur theory, and elevating simply useable to irresistibly desirable.
