Rakesh Masih

Head of Product Design


Rakesh has moved on from Crossref. Rakesh Masih joined Crossref in 2015, having graduated from De Montfort University with a BA Hons Degree in Multimedia Design. He brought with him a design background from a number of creative industries and 9 years of experience. People would often find him walking around the Oxford office with a sketch pad, creating new design concepts. Some said his finger might even have been made from pencils. He was responsible for creating user experience designs for the product team and also designed the visual style for all new products. His motivations came from analyzing people’s behaviors and interactions to craft truly imaginative user interfaces that were elegant to experience and visually pleasing to the eye.
