YUJ Designs works with the ideology of creating data-driven design solutions. The firm offers a plethora of UX-based services. YUJ Designs is a one-of-its-kind UX design firm that has grown exponentially over recent years. The studio was launched by Samir Chabukswar and Prasadd Bartakke in the year 2009 with the sole aim of offering high-end design solutions to help businesses generate greater ROI. The absence of UX awareness and maturity of designs in the Indian region prompted them to enter the market. The leaders built the company with a passionate mindset and a focused approach to deliver impact by design.
YUJ Designs strives to create a 10x impact at one-tenth of the cost for its clientele. The firm boasts of a huge client base that includes prominent Fortune 100 and 500 listed brands, which are B2B, B2C companies, and enterprises. YUJ Designs works with a customer-first approach and treads on a unique problem-solving path. Since they actively engage their clients in the designing process, their products generate 10x ROI for businesses. YUJ Designs has played a pivotal role in helping its clients achieve a competitive edge in the market.
The brand recently announced that it has witnessed a significant 70% year-on-year business growth. It has also achieved the milestone of exhibiting a 100% surge in its employee strength amidst the pandemic. The firm is now a team of 200 plus design consultants and is keen on expanding its workforce in the times to come.
The brand also introduced various initiatives paying back to the design community for its constant support. One of its unique programs, YUJ-Mitra, deserves a special mention, which is an open-to-all referral program. It enables one to offer growth opportunities for acquaintances, friends, people in the professional network, etc.
Aiming to bridge the demand-supply gap the UX design industry is facing, the company developed a YUJ-Way of Working (WOW) program wherein the brand focuses on hiring young design talent from colleges across the country. The program empowers aspiring designers to become industry-ready.
The company also conducted a Health Check Survey to have a better understanding of their employees’ morale, satisfaction as well as engagement levels. It offered a platform to their team to express their opinions, suggestions and share their feedback. The results were impressive with 83% of people feeling happy working at YUJ. This feedback was used to improve their processes and policies as well as track, measure, and increase employee engagement.
Expressing his thoughts on this occasion, Mr. Samir Chabukswar, CEO & Founder, YUJ Designs, said, “I extend my heartiest congratulations to the entire team at YUJ Designs. Completing a successful run of 12 years is indeed a significant milestone for us. We would like to extend our gratitude to our team and customers.

Sharing his views, Mr. Prasadd Bartakke, Co-founder and CDO, YUJ Designs, said, “We are delighted as we complete 12 years in the UX domain.
