WHO AM I

Hello there! I think we've met earlier, at the Home page (haha). I’m Ganesh Karthik. I’m someone who believes that diverse perspectives makes way for strong UX designs. Over the years, I have held several roles including that of solutions engineer, a scrum master, a developer, a localization associate, a UX designer and an accessibility tester. Each of these roles gave me unique perspectives and skills to tackle complex user experience issues. I continue to add more skills and perspectives to my design signature with every new opportunity.
So If you are seeking a collaborative and creative problem-solver with diverse skills and experiences, I look forward to an opportunity to speak with you and work together. Scroll on to check out some of my illustrations and personal scrapbook

Fancy a trip down memory lane with me ?

Throughout my life I have been at the intersection of varying cultures , ethnicities and social classes.I grew up in the middle east (Kuwait and Dubai) to Indian immigrant parents in a predominantly German neighborhood .Later I moved to culturally diverse India to complete my higher education and commenced my professional journey in a multinational software corporation as a software solutions engineer that gave me the opportunity to connect with multiple clients worldwide from east Asia to South America.

Me with my dad and sister at Kuwait Towers , I think it's fair to say my parents chose usability over aesthetics while dressing me up

Through it all cross cultural design of products and technology fascinated my endlessly even if it mean writing English in notebooks which had margins in the right as per the local Arabic language norms during middle school, or constantly confusing the driver’s seat (right side of the car in Dubai and left side in India , or wait , is it the other way around?) or constantly changing my schedules to work with clients in different time zones.

A shot of the fabled Lord Vishnu Temple I took at  Kanchipuram India . Judging by the angle of the shot I'am assuming photography is probably not one of my talents.

In this era of globalization designing products and user experiences that adheres to the specifities of all cultures and social classes is a necessity and is the most effective way to win hearts and this is why I have taken up several disparate roles including a localization associate which allowed me to study cultures in depth. I continue to add more skills and perspectives to improve my design signature with every new opportunity.

If you are seeking a collaborative and creative problem-solver with diverse skills and experiences, I look forward to an opportunity to speak with you and work together or if you would like to have a casual chat I'am always available for a cup of coffee or even a heavy lunch ! :)
