Hello! My name is Chelms Varthoumlien (pronounced Vaar-thoom-lee-an) and I'm a designer based in Toronto.
I was born and raised in Calcutta, India and moved to Canada for my undergrad shortly after a few months into my BFA at Delhi School of Fine Arts. Canada has happily been home to me for the past 10 years.
My background is in Visual Arts with an educational background in Art theory, practice, and digital media.
My love for problem-solving led me to pursue a career in design, and my artistic spirit keeps me curious and imaginative.
I've been privileged and proud to work on many rewarding projects from multiple brand identities to digital products for clients in various sectors.
I'm passionate about working in tech, mentoring others, and learning to apply design thinking and challenging assumptions to design problems. I'm always wearing my student hat on.
Outside of projects, I enjoy travelling with the wife, gaming, noodling on the guitar & bass, photography, random side projects, and learning French.
