I worked with Jyoti Bock on the UX team at the software company Widen (now Acquia). I have so much to say, but I will try to be succinct. Jyoti is an expert in UI and UX design with many years of experience – and you’ll see that shine through immediately in her work. She is a constant advocate for human-centered design, always willing to push back on well-worn assumptions in software and instead dig into user pain points and generate intuitive solutions. She has passion for research and is the only UXD I’ve ever worked with who not only insisted on testing her own designs, but delighted in finding something — anything — wrong with them. As a researcher, it was refreshing to work with someone so comfortable with challenging herself, to say the least.

Not only is she a great designer, she’s a great colleague and fun to have within a team. With us, she acted as the glue of the team. She was always the first to welcome new hires with that trademark Jyoti humor, positivity, and warmth. My first day, she sent me a message telling me to ask if I ever needed help. For the next year, I gladly accepted her collaboration and guidance as I learned how to design software. While Jyoti was a wellspring of support and patience, she also was never afraid to push back on teammates or stakeholders, set high standards, all while maintaining exceptional team and cross-functional relationships based on trust and respect.

I highly recommend Jyoti for her exceptional leadership and contributions to our UX team at Enel X. She was my UX Designer Lead and demonstrated an innate ability to organize and prioritize tasks. When our UX team was new to the company and still getting our feet on the ground, she effectively distributed responsibilities among the team and ensured we had a smooth transition with her as leader. What truly sets her apart is her commitment to fostering an inclusive and open environment; she would have weekly check-ins with the designers, a game day to get to know everyone better, workshops for collaboration, and many more. She consistently ensured that everyone's voice was heard and that discussions were conducted with a sense of comfort, collaboration, yet still addressed our business/UX objectives.
Beyond her managerial role, Jyoti actively mentored interns and fellow designers, generously sharing her UX design expertise and resources. Despite overseeing multiple applications and global teams, she maintained an approachable demeanor. A skilled communicator, leader, and decision-maker, Jyoti played a pivotal role in fostering a collaborative and thriving work environment.

Jyoti has a strong eye for well-designed applications and is passionate about building well-crafted application building blocks that then can be used to build the larger application. She is very friendly and personable and always willing to talk through designs and take feedback to make the product she is helping to build
even better.

"Jyoti helped me take a fresh and comprehensive look at my brand and website, getting me to ask questions about what I wanted to project, how I wanted to communicate, and functionality that I never would have thought of myself. She listened to everything I was telling her too, rather than pushing any prefabricated package on me. 
Jyoti refreshed and re-energized my whole digital presence, and set up my site so that it was easy for me to update and develop as my audience and interaction has grown. She was lovely to work with, open and professional and positive. I would recommend her to anyone."

Jyoti is an incredibly talented designer. She is a very quick learner and dove in quickly to get up to speed on Propeller’s mobile applications and four web-based products. Each of these systems was made better and more user-friendly as a result of her work.

Jyoti is also a wonderful person to work with. She is one of the most (if not the most) organized people I have ever worked with. She has a relentlessly positive attitude.
In my time working with her, she also regularly stepped out of her role as UX/UI designer to facilitate workshops for our cross-functional team. Our team communication immensely improved as a result of her workshops.
She is an invaluable asset to any team she is a part of.

"All I can say about Jyoti is “Wow!” She developed a video trailer for my debut novel and my experience with her can best be described as nothing less than spectacular. She asked all the right questions, gathered the pertinent information, and delivered a stellar product on time and within budget.

On top of all her professional skills, prowess, and know-how, she’s also a fantastic person. I look forward to working with her on the trailer for my next book."
