Anna Hatzisavas Design

About

Hi! I’m a digital product designer (UX & UI) from Melbourne, Australia, currently living in Umeå, Sweden.

I'm passionate about designing intuitive experiences that consider the entire end-to-end journey of a user, validated by user research and testing. I'm the user's biggest advocate, and I always endeavour to make design decisions and optimisations based off research and metrics.

I have 6 years experience working in start-up, enterprise, in-house and design studio roles, with a background in communication design. I enjoy working in Agile teams, across web and native app products.

My strengths are in execution – I am self motivated, hard-working and thorough, with a drive to attain a high standard of accuracy and precision. I enjoy the challenge of making complex problems feel simple. I love working in close collaboration with my team - UX researchers, UX writers, developers, architects, product owners & managers and everyone in between!
