Hi I’m vangel, a full-stack* Product Designer living in Athens.

*A designer that gets involved in every stage of a product design: research, design & coding (ui). A person who can understand a problem, propose a solution and help taking it to reality.

tldr

I work at Skroutz for the past 8+years (as Designer in industry ~10y). Skroutz is the leading marketplace of Greece with 11M sessions & 4M users in a daily basis. Currently I'm working at Skroutz Design Team as the Product Design Manager. I describe myself as Full-stack Product Designer due to my experience on research, design & coding.

I've seen Skroutz design team grow from 3 members to 18 and the company in general from 50 members to 400. I've always been a member of core product, setting - succeeding and failing at goals that gave me the opportunity to learn, unlearn and relearn. I believe that good design is humble, collaborative and iterative.

Occasionally I participate in freelance projects to explore new products beyond the boundaries of ecommerce. I also enjoy create meaningless things with CSS.

Feel free to drop me a line at vangeltzoo@gmail.com, or check my online profile at dribbble, codepen & twitter.

Thank you for your time
