Hi, I am Kurien - a UX designer based in Singapore. I am currently freelancing while looking for a full-time role.
I am open to remote work as well.
Samples of my work organized by process (not by project). So, the section on 'User Research' will only show the research aspects from a couple of projects. But if you are the type that finds more zen reading case studies from start to end, head over to my medium page.
And right now?
Doing a million design challenges from potential employers. Reading "100 things every designer needs to know about people". Learning Bravo studio. Brushing up my español, русский and 中文
Hi, I'm Kurien.
Why do you do the things you do? What does it take for you to do things you don't want to do? What is beautiful to you? Why is it beautiful to you? I am... um...Kurious. I am happiest when I am using my talents for social good.
My degree is in Life Sciences. I was a Qualification Engineer in the Pharmaceutical industry. For 10 years. Mainly, I drafted and executed test protocols to prove that equipment/processes did what they were supposed to do and met FDA/EU guidelines. When they didn't, I came up with corrective and preventive actions. That's a lot of training being analytical and detail-oriented with complex systems.
But I wanted to find something where I could utilize my creative skills also to help people. When I had enough savings, I took the plunge, did a full-time course in UX design and now I'm climbing the ropes as fast as possible.
I grew up in India and Singapore and spent many years in Malaysia, China and S.Korea. When I'm not UX-ing, I grapple with my jiu-jitsu family. Sometimes, I pretzel myself doing yoga. I sing every day. If inspired, I draw. I am also a language nerd and I like taking geometrically satisfying pictures.
I tried to fit my life in 2 pages
Less creepy than checking my facebook
I sound wise here. I think.

Thank you very much for your time Kurien, your work and your understanding of the system is excellent.
Every workplace needs that one mildly inappropriate, cheeky person. Ridiculously smart, creative, and designed for amazing things.
The Software Practice
Really appreciate the quick turnaround for all the changes requested.
Under the cheekiness, he is very smart and empathetic. He is meant to do unexpected things and blow people away with his talent.
