Hello! Nice to meet you. My name is Sonali Zaveri, I'm currently a Designer / Developer at Oracle where I manage and build tools like our design system, and tackle UX and front-end development challanges. I am a proud resident of SF Bay Area where I spend most of my free time

How I roll

The following are the principles I follow as a designer. They help me evaluate if I'm being just the right amount of crazy.


Always put your users first

This may be true for all designers but unfortunately it's not true for everyone in a company. I feel that my roll as a designer is to be the voice of the user, study them and make sure they are heard.


Throw out all constraints

My first brainstorming session shouldn't take into account the restrictions I'll face. I shouldn't consider development resources, access to information or other things that would change the way I think. It's my job to come up with the best ideas I can and then add the layer of restrictions on after. Half the time when doing this, I'll realize things I thought were restrictions (i.e., it would be too difficult to pull that data) aren't problems at all.


Set goals before every project

Goals are how I keep myself in check (and these princicples of course). I should constantly check that I'm actually addressing them. It's way too easy to get caught up in the details of a project and stakeholder feedback and lose track of why I was really doing something in the first place.

The inside scoop

I am a fun loving and adventurous person, and I love trying new things! Except roller coasters. (Disclaimer: this does not inhibit by ability to enjoy theme parks. I love Disneyland. Let's go to Disneyland.)

I currently reside in sometimes sunny San Francisco, California. Overtime I have developed a passion for health technology, education and energy. I hope to further my career someday in one of these three fields. In 2013 I graduated from the University of California, Davis with a Bachelors of Arts in Design and a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science.
