Hola
Humans

I'm Joby Varghese, a user experience designer in Bangalore with over 15 years of experience. I specialize in crafting user-centric solutions that seamlessly blend functionality, aesthetics, and accessibility, all backed by solid research. My experience encompasses diverse projects for both mobile and desktop platforms, involving all phases of the design process from research to validation.

Growing up in the culturally rich landscapes of Kerala, I developed a profound appreciation for art and culture. Encouraged by my father's wisdom, I pursued my passion for drawing, painting, and typography, eventually earning a degree in Applied Arts from the esteemed College of Fine Arts, Thripunithura, Kerala.

Beginning my career in graphic design, I embarked on a journey of continuous learning and growth. Through internships and hands-on experience, I honed my skills in branding, web design, and user experience. Today, I specialize in crafting impactful digital experiences that resonate with users and drive organizational success.
