Gadzhi Kharkharov, ~designer

Currently product designer at Webflow — a tool that makes producing for web more approachable. Mostly trying to figure out how to create the right visual tools for designers.

Webflow Grid, 2018

Webflow Interactions, 2017

A system allowing designers to visually create complex web interactions and animations without any coding skills.

Webflow Flexbox, 2015

Stampsy, 2014

Worked as a designer (and partly as a front-end engineer) at Stampsy — a web platform for sharing and discovering visual stories. I designed the product and built a modular CSS architecture behind it.

Stampsy iPad app, 2012–2013

In 2012, before becoming a web platform, Stampsy was an experimental iPad app for creating stories with a simple design editor. I designed and prototyped a lot of its touch-based interactions with different tools and codez.

At some point I designed a UI theme for Sublime Text — a popular code editor. It's been installed by ~400k users and has ~7k stars on GitHub.

During 2010–2012 I've freelanced and worked with various international startups, but most of the time I was just posting useless stuff on Dribbble.

In my early twenties I've played a lot of World of Warcraft — a multiplayer online game. It's quite intense and requires a lot of concentration. I had a lot of fun designing and building custom interfaces for it, which improved my performance and overall game experience. I think that's what got me into design.
