Hello, I am Ilektra Rachovitsa...

Born and raised in Athens, Greece, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts and Art Sciences at the University of Ioannina. I have completed an MFA in Web Design and New Media at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco.
I have been working as a Web Designer and Front-End Developer.

My expertise is designing and developing functional user interfaces with a focus on social media and interactive design. I don't create for an idea, meaning or impression but a reason, usability and functionality.
