Dan Nisttahuz

Designer in Tokyo, he/him


I’m a product & motion designer with more than 13 years of experience. My background as an engineer and my love for design puts me in a unique position between technology and liberal arts. I’m a very competitive and passionate designer focused on pixel perfection.

I was lucky to be part of different companies, projects and meet so many talented people. All that experience taught me that nothing is impossible. Proof of that is the different products that I was lucky to launch on Product Hunt and other platforms. I’m comfortable working alone or in big teams. And I’m always a team player.

I’m an Apple fan boy, I love to travel and I’m a passionate photographer and videographer.



Animation can make data more comprehensible, engaging, and useful, especially on mobile. When animating data visualizations, designers should use motion design principles—and avoid common pitfalls.
