About me

Hey, I am Elise Gherlan, a curious-minded Product Designer doing UX Design, UI Design, and User Research for Digital Products in my full-time job in a health-tech company.

Practicing photography over the past ten years I realized that I love connecting with people of different backgrounds either in my own city or when traveling. I am grateful it taught me how to communicate better, ask deeper questions, and bring my empathy level higher as each person is unique and we all have to deal with our self-perception and ego.

I am generally passionate about sustainability, accessibility, environmental issues, and the intersection of these where positive impact can be done for people around the world. I also like to keep up to date with the latest tech developments that can bring solutions in unexpected ways. That is why I also want to participate in projects that are not always for-profit as I believe in trying to give back to our communities in a world that is facing many challenges.

In my personal life, I love traveling, cooking, and practising languages (I speak four 😀) and one of my goals is to live in 3 more countries in the next 10 years. As a Lindy Hop dancer and follower of yoga & movement practises, I like to keep a balance between an active social life and time for myself for growth, mindfulness, and enrichment in a society that does not seem to slow down.

On this website you’ll see my Product Design portfolio but also my Photography portfolio.

On social media you find me under the name of VisuElise where I mainly post photography.
