Hello there, nice to meet you!

I’m Anna, a self-taught product designer with a great passion for UX and research

Over the last 10 years, I got entrepreneurship experience, co-founded the web agency and award-winning IT competitions startup, worked remotely and in-hose led a full design cycle and mentored junior team members.

Being originally from Ukraine, I had a life goal to move abroad to develop professionally as well as to discover new cultures and people. Since 2012, I’ve been working with startups, product companies, and agencies across the globe. In 2015 I co-founded Creativin – the web development agency in Prague and in 2016 – IT Challenges – the startup which matched talents and employers through offline and online competitions which tool part in Krakow (Poland). Since 2017 I moved definitely from my homeland to Berlin, where I am currently based.

I see my passion in working with talented and motivated teams, mentoring juniors, leading design strategy, and bringing fresh, functional, and desirable ideas by empathizing with the customers’ and business needs. Keen on observing and understanding human interaction with the systems and technologies and converting the findings to elegant customer-centered solutions.

When not designing, I’m most likely hiking, reading, or meeting people learning about their culture.
