Hi I’m vangel, a full-stack* Product Designer living in Athens.
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.
I work at Skroutz for the past 9+ years (as Designer in industry 10+). 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 since I occasionally create my very own product/ideas from scratch (Design & code).
I've seen Skroutz design team grow from 3 members to 20 and the company in general from 50 members to 800+. 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, bringing new ideas to life using RoR, and creating nft collections for fun.
Feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, or check my online profile at dribbble, codepen & twitter.
Thank you for your time
