Ajay S Menon - Creative Head Of TestInsane

Ajay S Menon – Creative Head Of TestInsane

Without much ado, we wanted to interview him and publish the story here in our blog.

#1 Ajay, please share your story in your own words about “How you felt when you spoke to TestInsane about the work and how do you feel today?” Did you make a great decision back then to work with TestInsane?
I was referred to Santhosh Tuppad by someone else in my contacts. I went in with good set of mind  to TestInsane office even though it was an IT company (I mention about “though” keyword because I used to believe corporate clients who are in services industry are boring with creative designs). Most of the corporate clients require normal creatives and I unfortunately don’t like to do such creatives and therefore had mixed feelingsin terms of working with TestInsane. Nevertheless, once I communicated with Santhosh Tuppad; I realized that he needs out of the box creatives and is bored to death when he looks at boring ones like other corporate companies do.

After listening to his ideas and suggestions on the type of creatives he needed, I got enthusiasm to work along with him. Its been a year now and its hard for me to believe that time just flew by with such cool work and happiness. Personally, I am happy with 90% of work and 10% was noise due to whatsoever reasons and I take that blame on myself 😉

#2 How do you feel about “Culture” aspect of TestInsane?
Enthusiastic, Fun, Innovative, Motivational and Rocking People. Period!

#3 Where do you want to take your creative skills in the coming near future or long term?
I want to try something new always and have been doing that over a year and will keep continue doing it. Santhosh Tuppad has given me a platform to take my creatives to next creative level.

#4 Do you get bored or excited when Santhosh Tuppad speaks to you about the work? How do you feel. Would love to listen to elaborated details!
Yes, I get really HIGH as he gives me enough freedom in developing creatives. To him its all about freedom and that’s the cool part & a reason for me to work with him. We both are insane in that way!

#5 Would you always love to work with TestInsane which will help TestInsane to go to the newer heights in terms of happiness?
YES, YES & YES! As long as he believes that my work is awesome, I will be proud to be working for TestInsane as Creative Head. Anyways, when they go bad he would surely pump in energy into me to do awesome again. In that way, there is no way we would discontinue to work.

#6 What do you think is missing in most of the corporate companies with respect to creative designs? Does it seem boring to you? If yes, why?
Most of the companies hire creative designers and don’t want them to be creative J That’s unfortunate! Yes, I have less knowledge & experience and I might be wrong. Nevertheless I have faced problems during my work with the companies in my past and also even at the companies where I attended interview.

Ajay says, “I ain’t a puppet. I’m a designer who wants to make this dreadful world beautiful with my creative.”

I (Santhosh Tuppad) would like to thank Ajay S Menon for his services to Test Insane and we are expanding our business with him in terms of creative work. He just rocks and I feel great to work with him. I am proud.

Yeah, you heard it right. We launched TestLogue as a new initiative to make it fun for the Software Testing community / Test Enthusiasts / Freshers to go through the testing stories which could be technical, inspirational, motivational etc. We believe that visuals can do a lot to just plain content. We will be releasing series of stories including technical and non-technical through TestLogue comic series.

Watch out for many more stories across various topics. Learn through TestLogue is the new slogan for people who want to learn testing. And yes, somewhere this was inspired by what Robert Sabourin’s I-Am-A-Bug J Thank you Rob for inspiring the testing community always!
