Create better user experiences

UI UX designer



INTRO

I am Theodoros Labropoulos, an experienced and passionate User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX) designer located in Athens, Greece. I specialise in creating high-impact, accessible user experiences for startups and established brands. With 10 years + experience, I’m motivated to solve common business challenges through unique, fully functional and user-friendly mobile and web-based projects. During my career, I have refined my techniques, accumulating a wealth of knowledge on user-centred design for numerous applications and platforms. This includes the use of Information Architecture (the creation of a structure), Wireframing, Prototyping and Product Testing. For my Frontend work, I utilise Bootstrap 4.1 (Flex) for speed and flexibility, and I also have experience of using Jekyll for streamlined website Frontend deployment. I place great emphasis on understanding the user journey and how intuitive design can solve complex usability problems. Besides this, I have worked with a number of developer groups and have experience using distributed version control systems, especially Git, Zeplin, InVision and Slack. This enables me to manage both small or large projects with great precision, leading to improved outcomes for the client.

Aside from my vast experience in visual design, I appreciate collaboration and team working. I enjoy working in an agile methodology with like-minded colleagues to solve difficult user challenges. I am an enthusiastic team player who is keenly aware of the benefits of working in a multi-disciplinary environment. As such, I am an ideal fit for startups or new organisational forms with a dynamic, creative culture. Please get in touch if you are seeking a reliable professional who can unleash your company’s true potential.
