About Nikos

Hi, I'm Nikos.

I'm a Digital Product Designer based in Athens, Greece. With far-reaching curiosity and thirst for impact-driven design, I have worked in a vast array of digital projects for small to enterprise level clients since 2013.

My manifesto follows the idea that a beautiful product that doesn't work well, is ugly. 
I design with purpose. I like to be less of a "beautifier of things" and more of a "problem solver". I prefer holistic, customer-centric design approaches. I have faith in design processes; thus, when I design products I use the Double Diamond design model.I carry out every design project with great attention to detail (basically my OCD forces me to do it). Bottom line: Good design means never having to say "Click/Tap Here". 

My to-do design process list:
1. Zoom out and see the big picture
2. Ask the right questions
3. Design a seamless experience
4. Keep it simple
5. Test it
✔︎ Iterate

⌘ Tools I use:
I use Adobe Experience Design for early prototypes, Sketch for UI design, Principle for animations, Invision for flows and Zeplin for successful handoffs. I use Slack and Skype to communicate and Trello to manage my workflow.  

Other tools that I use: Adobe's Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, Balsamiq, Framer, PrincipleTreejack , OptimalSort , Draw.io, Hotjar, GA, Google Optimize
