I am


The goal is to feel a part of something,
not just play a part in anything.


So, who’s Surinder?

I'm HFI-CUATM - Certified Usability Analyst, and pursuing NN/g user experience certification. That means that all of my work is rooted in research, design thinking, and empathy for the end user.

I help SaaS and eCommerce companies grow their business with stunning user experiences and user interfaces that converts!

I also started my own little remote Ui/Ux agency called Osum Studio that helps businesses like yours think about how to improve your product's UX/UI.

I am currently working remotely as a freelance product designer worldwide for various different industries—and I'm always looking for new challenges!

My design approach is Human Centric. A design is created to solve a problem, Service, or Product. I start with research and strategy to make the right solution for the target audience.
