I'm a senior product designer with html prototyping skills based out of Athens. In my spare time I like working on nonprofit projects.
I enjoy working with committed teammates with a strong sense of humanity. The choices I make are guided by the wellbeing of people, communities and the environment.
I was more than fortunate to come across a person like Vasilis. He is one of the most creative & cooperative people I have worked with. His ability to turn complex ideas into simple, functional workflows & designs is more than impressive. Beauty & top usability is what describes best his work. His optimism, politeness & modesty along with his skills make him a true must-have partner & collaborator.
