About me.

I'm Ioannis (Yiannis), and I'm currently designing digital products at scale for Google Maps in London. Over the years I've worked on a wide range of tech verticals aligning human-centered solutions with positive business outcomes.

I have a passion for sharing my learnings with the design community. Speaking to big events like TED X or small Meet-ups I'm always keen on connecting with an audience.

Strong believer that together we can move forward as a discipline, I've organized the Behance Portfolio Review in Athens and London, with over 500 attendees for more than 10 times. Also, I mentor and teach design courses for both junior and more advanced designers on DesignLab.

Work. 

With over 6+ years of experience, I have helped different organizations in Athens and London ranging from Big Tech, Fintech, E-commerce, and SaaS achieve financial and customer growth.

On a personal note...

Other than my passion for industrial design and digital products, I'm a huge music lover, a cinema nerd and a comic book geek.

I can talk for hours about StarWars,  about the Matrix movies and geek out about film theories. My favorite one is that John Mason (Sir Sean Connery) from The Rock is actually James bond. Google it, and see how far the rabbit hole goes ;)

I've been playing the guitar for 16 years 🎸, during the pandemic I've started learning the piano 🎹 and as a kid I did stage acting and picked it up again in uni 🎭
