2010 - August 2014

Freelance UI / UX Designer

From websites to applications I've worked on various projects including Visual Design, User Experience and some Front-End development. Having experience in User Research and Usability Testing helps inform my design decisions. Over the past two years I have taught myself HTML, CSS and bits of JQuery to further my knowledge of creating interactive experiences. I also enjoy coming up with personal projects that keep me curious and creative.

"To recommend Anurag is an understatement. I have worked with him for about nine months and as a Graphic Designer he is everything one could ask for: Very creative, responsive to suggestions, on-time delivery and superb work ethic which results in an excellent finished product on time."

UX Research Director / Project Manager / Design Researcher

CKS Consulting Pvt. Ltd, Bangalore, INDIA  

Starting off as a Researcher meant my primary role was to conduct User Interviews and Ethnography and report the research findings. I quickly grew into the role of a Project Manager, which entailed Proposal Writing, Research Design, and scripting Analysis Workshops while managing teams of 4-6 researchers. Being a Director meant supervising projects specializing in Usability and User Experience. I was fortunate to work with different clients, including Boeing, Nokia and Asian Paints.

"I have worked with Anurag for 3 years in CKS. In this time, he grew from a Design Researcher to the Head of User Experience in the firm. He learnt new skills like research, design and usability, quickly and with complete ease. Anurag is able to translate user challenges into actionable user interaction design, resulting in an end product that is more intuitive and scalable to other user segments as well."

"Anurag matches his hardworking nature with the ability to think laterally and the will to take daring steps. He is certainly one of the most inspiringly creative people I have had an opportunity to interact with."
