Meet Alisa K., Product Designer at WhatsApp. She designed Salty, a fun genderless sticker pack to help people express their true feelings when words fall short. She was inspired by her friends' reactions, as well as her own emotions. Read her story here: “I always knew I was supposed to be in the creative industry, but growing up in Ukraine it was a very niche career, and most designers were self-taught. Thankfully, the owner of a small design agency in my hometown gave me a chance, and jumpstarted my career in design. I've worked at WhatsApp for almost a decade, focusing on keeping the experience simple, reliable and secure for over 1.5 billion users around the world. A fun product I recently worked on was my first sticker pack, called Salty.
I build products because I can be creative, do what I love, and produce something meaningful at the same time. At WhatsApp, we never sacrifice quality for quantity, and we design and build things in the most intuitive and reliable way possible. We have a great responsibility to provide an essential service to one-fifth of the world population. I'm hoping my story can inspire other women to start doing something they've always wanted to do with their life.” — Alisa K., Product Designer, WhatsApp
