Hello (web) surfer! I’m Viktor Golias, a Product designer. 

I believe in a holistic approach in designing digital products. Design solutions should meet user needs, consider technical implementation complexity and reach business goals.

Currently available for hire

What can I handle

PROTOTYPING

Product (feature) validation with stakeholders or/and users is essential part of my design process. Interactive mockups communicate idea in a tangible way.

UX/UI design

Approved concept is transformed into wireframes, user flows and final UI representation. Usability and Aesthetics are standard.

DESIGN SYSTEMS

Through my career I created Design Systems with aim to teach others the principles and guide healthy evolution of the product.

Am I useful to you?

Experience with e-commerce, automotive

I understand code

Experience

I have worked with incredible people in different environments (product team, international digital agency, freelancing and as a co-founder of a startup).
