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. I am a Singapore PR.
Here are some samples of my work organized by process (not by project). So, the section on 'User Research' will only show the user research aspects from a couple of projects.
I write retrospectives and case studies on all (interesting) projects on my medium page. Here are some of the most recent ones:
My degree is in Life Sciences. I used to be a Qualification Engineer in the Pharmaceutical industry with big ones like Pfizer, MSD, Alcon, Novartis, Roche etc. For 10 years. Mainly, I made test protocols to show that equipment/processes did what they were supposed to do and met FDA/EU guidelines. If they didn't comply, I came up with corrective and preventive actions. That's a lot of training being analytical and detail-oriented with complex systems. Working together with the Engineering, Production & Quality teams. And handling gigantic volumes of data.
But I wanted to find something where I could utilize my creative skills also to help solve human problems. 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 have worked 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.
Laura Blackhall, HelloSG
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.
