Hello, Ola, Ni Hao, Cześć!
My name is Paweł Sysiak. My name is Paweł Sysiak. I design digital products and work on projects combining technology and culture. I grew up in Warsaw, Poland. Currently living in Seattle, USA.
I am a product designer (UI/UX) with expertise in visual design. I have experience working with startups, small to mid-size businesses, and organizations based in both the USA and Poland.
My designs are most effective when I am allowed to contribute beyond the visual layer. I love to brainstorm and tackle complex problems with simple and delightful solutions. I believe the best design is about collaboration and the right balance between business, visual, and psychological perspectives. I always find it valuable to validate design decisions with user/customer research (even a simple one).
Personally, I am passionate about art, internet culture and digging into understanding how visual systems work.
Get to know me! Did you know that...
...I didn’t miss a post for ~3.5 years now from Know Your Meme – the encyclopedia of internet creativity. I love the intersection of art and Internet. I love crowdsource culture – the culture that is fueled by the internet's "long tail".
...I definitely earned an art geek badge. I studied painting at Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, worked on various art projects and exhibitions i.e.:
"No, No, I Hardly Ever Miss a Show", Zachęta National Art Gallery, Warsaw, Poland; "Ain't No Sorry", Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw, Poland; "Animal Manifest", Raster Gallery, Warsaw, Poland; "Fitting in Space", 98 Weeks Project, Beirut, Lebanon; "Hunky Dory", Karlin Studios, Prague, Czech Republic.
...I have explored 73% of Le Corbusier's and 64% of Herzog de Meuron' buildings. Photo on the left was taken during the amazing tour of Le Corbusier's "Convent La Tourette" in France (probably it's my top architectural site worth visiting). I love architecture. Just drop my anywhere in the world. Come back after a week and I will come up with a list of most interesting buildings in the area we should visit together.
So Say Hi!
Friend request or email me I will be happy to talk to you.
