I am Justin Jolly Samuel. 33 years old, from the Southern Indian state of Kerala. My interest in design is deeply routed to my childhood. When every child fantasised of being a Super Hero, I enjoyed sketching them. My hobbies included creating comic books and sketching the figures that floated in my mind. My Parents were the first ones to discover my talent and encouraged me to be an artist.
Being awarded for many School Competitions, it provided my artistic mind to bloom to its best. I was introduced to new philosophies of Art and Design called Bauhaus from NID (National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad), which strengthened me to achieve many of my dreams and to be a successful designer.
I am not finished yet. I have much to gain both in terms of knowledge and experience from this world. I want to see how this world sees itself. I want to inspire myself with everything placed beautifully in this world. And yes of-course I want to see how this world will be with my creation in it...
I am employed in Hyderabad, India as a Lead/Manager - UX Design. Before this I have worked for Award Winning Title called 'The Sims Social' with Playfish-EA Games , India/UK. Overseas experience of 3.5 years as Game Artist, UI Design, Web Design in Quatre-Bornes, Mauritius.
