Hello! My name is Chelms Varthoumlien (pronounced Vaar-thoom-lee-an) and I'm a Product Designer based in Toronto.
I was born and raised in Calcutta, India. I moved to Canada in 2006 for my undergrad—a few months into my BFA at Delhi School of Fine Arts. Canada has been home to me for the past 10 years.
My background is in Visual Arts with a background in art theory, practice, and digital media.
My love for problem-solving led me to pursue a career in design. My artistic spirit keeps me curious and imaginative.
I'm passionate about working in tech, mentoring, apply design thinking, challenging assumptions, and building relationships. I'm always eager to wear my student hat on.
Outside of projects, I enjoy travelling, video games, noodling on the guitar & bass, photography, random side projects, and learning French.
