People often see programmers as uncivilized and antisocial cavemen.

The truth is we are downright loveable once you get to know us.
Really, come by our cells, ehr... offices and see for yourself.

Radical Elements members - Trolls by Olivier Silven

We are a group of six people that make successful online businesses and love their jobs. If you want to love it too, you should check out some of our projects . If you want to read more about what we do, you can start here.

Our manifesto

  • People are the most valuable part of the company. Not only because they are absolutely amazing professionals, but also because they are great guys and gals.
  • We believe in the patterns and processes that we have developed in the past decade and we love to change, adapt and evolve constantly.
  • The user is the centre of our attention in every part of our design. We want to create the best possible experience for her.
  • We ask “why“ all the time. Why has this campaign brought so many sales, why has this advertisement not translate into more registrations, why did we forget to feed the cat again? We believe that is the path to true knowledge. Sorry, cat.
  • We love things being automatic, but not everything can be done this way. So, we create tailor-made websites, with full attention to detail, and treat each client as a unique case. If we don’t treat you specially, you will not have a special website, and how else would we beat competition?
  • Speed! Our webpages are blazing fast. It is so important. Do we need to clarify?
  • We don’t like suits, formalities and bureaucracy. We like creativity, good communication and consistency.
  • Multitasking is so bad for everyone. We don’t do it. We handle one thing at a time. We are FIFOs. We respect and love our work and we want to do it focused and calm.

Simple, clear, meaningful. We want all the aspects of our work to inspire those values.

The team

Alexander Lingris

Alexander Lingris

Founder, Programmer

Around 10 years in the web development industry. Confronting programming challenges is his favourite task. Likes to get involved in every step of designing a website or an application. Really loves creative challenges and games. Hacking, programming and singing with weird voices while in the office.

Elvira Lingris

Elvira Lingris

Front-end developer, web designer, ailurophile

She's been into development and design for the last four years but still can't decide which one she likes better. A stickler for perfection, constantly hungry (literally and metaphorically) and never really satisfied with anything, except chocolate of course, she's never learned to control her stress or enthusiasm. She has mixed feelings about most front-end movements and trends, but loves to be up to date with all the rage. Obsessed with simple and clean UX design, if you ever work with her and want her to like you, just ask her to make you a black animated banner with flashy red letters. Then run.

Christos Tsialas

Christos Tsialas

Back-end developer, aspiring time-traveler

Has been dabbling in computers since kindergarten, but still believes they have a mind of their own. Design trends puzzle and annoy him. Does not know what to do with a tablet PC if he's handed one. Makes great use of his various OCD symptoms by thoroughly checking and pointing out the flaws in his co-workers' projects. Questions the meaning of life and all of existence when they find some in his own. Will not stop drinking the office coffee until someone makes a remark on his hyperactivity. Loves old computer games, movie nights with friends, and arguing with the CEO over things of no real-world value.

Marianna Gkaleni

Marianna Gkaleni

Graphic designer

A graphic designer in a romantic relationship with good and functional design. A fan of geometry and clean design who also appreciates very detailed work. Eager to dive into the magical world of web design and branding, willing to try her hand at everything. Uses only black ink to sketch. Electronic devices seem to hate her. Seriously. But she can still make it as a designer (!). This troll often needs to be forced out of the office when facing a challenging task. That’s pretty much every day.

Kostas Skripkin

Kostas Skripkin

Front-end developer

Kostas is a developer who achieves great quality with minimal quantity. According to him a webpage should be simplistically clean and functional and he would never compromise with anything less than that (or more than that). As hot-blooded as he is he never needs coffee even in the late hours and welcomes every hard work as a challenge. He never accepts any help unless he tries first everything humanly possible by himself. He could spend endless hours in front of the computer with just a pair of headphones and good music and maybe even work while on that. In any case his stubborn nature and determination for perfection are the key elements for getting the job done.

Sokratis

Sokratis

Account manager

His holy task is to organize everything. Documents, offers, invoices, emails, alive and deadlines. You can find him everywhere and nowhere trying to keep the team sane and the office rolling. Gentle yet strict, demanding but tactful, he often makes you realise what has to be done, just by asking the right questions. Beware, he is a force to be reckoned with on Μondays.

Special thanks to Olivier Silven for letting us use his trolls illustrations. Make sure to check out his work on behance and tumblr.
