Hi, I'm Kosta Mylonas!
Strategic Design Leader solving creative challenges by following proven research processes with empathy, service, enthusiasm, and unparalleled passion for excellence. I started my career working at brand-building Chicago advertising agencies. Around 1998 I decided to focus my career on digital design and IT in parallel to traditional advertising so I started a full-service Ad Agency with peak revenue of $6m by 2007. In 2012 I refocused on Design and UX after the agency was sold and moved to Dallas. Tools I use daily: Adobe CC Apps such as Illustrator, Photoshop, XD, Jira, Miro, Invision, UserTesting.com. Other tools I use: Asana, Gantt, Slack, Teams, Sketch, Zepplin, Visual Studio Code, Figma, Animator, Lottie. Extensive financial literacy in banking and securities compliance, fraud prevention and IT security, accounting concepts, occupational fraud schemes, consumer and insurance fraud. Acumen certification in Human Center Design. Extensive SAFe training and Agile SAFe Certification from USAA. Original product design patents for auto buying experience at USAA. My favorite quote: Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected. - S. Jobs
