Henry Saller

Front-end Developer / Product Designer

profile-picture

Born in a small Carpathian town, I got my primary education and work experience in Ukraine. With over six years of experience in the industry, I have been working with brands, big and small alike, from all around the world. Currently, I am working with offshore American e-commerce companies as a front-end developer.

While my education and first career were design related, I swiftly brew a strong desire to get my hands dirty with code. Thus, being able to bring motion and interactivity into static designs is what drew me towards the career switch. But what truly hooked me on, are all the technical possibilities and the variety of platforms to express myself creatively.

Concerning product design, I truly believe in two things. That a product is only as good as the message it carries. As well as that both designers and engineers should follow a user-centered approach to build the best product possible. Active collaboration between designers and developers is at the core of understanding the possibilities and limitations.

It's a weird thing to say, but a well-written documentation is one of the most enjoyable reads I can think of. While being a nerdy gamer myself, I never miss a chance to hit the weights or to prompt a spontaneous road trip.
