Originally hailing from England, I’m a Silicon Valley-based multidisciplinary UX/UI/Visual designer currently working with startups, small and mid-sized companies. I believe in lifelong learning, futuristic innovation, moonshot thinking, and using tech for the betterment of humanity. I have 10+ years of experience in the design industry.
As I’ve grown in my career, I’ve delightedly given back by mentoring countless junior designers, college and high school students, and by participating in design industry groups in leadership roles.
Currently, I organize South Bay Product & UX Meetup which has almost 1800 members. I also offer coaching services for people transitioning into design careers.

“Shumyla is extraordinarily talented. She not only produces beautifully designed work in any medium, but she also is a great colleague who gives her time and expertise to help others. On Nike’s DC3 project, Shumyla created materials for us that were beautiful and firmly within Nike’s brand. She was always willing to make time to give her feedback and advice to our team to help make sure we produced work that lived up to Nike’s expectations. Her guidance and willingness to partner with our team was invaluable.”

“I just wanted to thank you once again for meeting with me and for all those motivating words. It really helped me to realize so much about myself as a designer and the areas I needed to work on. After we met, I changed my portfolio drastically and started getting more interviews! I just accepted an offer as a full-time UX/UI Designer at a startup last week and will start work on Monday! Thank you so much for all the help you’ve given me. Please let me know if I can help you with anything in the future.”
