Hi, I'm Loucas Papantoniou, aka loucaspapa.
I am a UX designer; not a rockstar, a unicorn, a ninja or a magician. Design is for me the process of making sense of complex stuff that I don't understand.
There is too much clutter and bullshit in the world, so lets avoid littering it with more by designing meaningful products and experiences.
