UX & Strategy Design
A homogeneous blend of creativity, rationality and curiosity, I’m Saloni Luktuke, a multi-disciplinary designer. Trained in Product, UX & Strategy, I’m currently collaborating with startups & companies in my hometown, Pune, India. Over the years, I’ve developed a keenness in conversations and I thrive on making sense of seemingly unrelated connections, drawing patterns, understanding relationships and identifying opportunities.
Feel free to connect via LinkedIn / Instagram or any other social media channel you find me on and let’s discuss design & business over a cup of strong coffee!
Which kind of contribution has provided to your career the MDS experience?
MDS was a perfect amalgamation of business, management and design with a right mix of theoretical and practical modules, paired with the opportunity of working on live projects with some of the most renowned Italian companies across various sectors. With colleagues hailing from all parts of the world, it was one of the most multi-ethnic and culturally enriching experiences which broadened my global perspective.
The MDS experience ensured a systemic and strategic mindset and nurtured a sense of circular, end to end thinking that is pivotal in approaching and analyzing any problem.

The 15-month experience including the Milanese life, short bursts of espressos, networking and living the Italian design scene is something I would definitely recommend to anyone aiming to chart their career on the cusp of design and business.
