With over 10 years of freelancing experience, I've been involved in all types of projects. I started out in print and transitioned to web where I kicked some serious HTML and CSS butt for some time. As smart phones came to play I switched my focus to mobile apps, and latley I've been working on B2B and SaaS web and mobile apps and managing digital products as a User Experience designer and creative team lead.
As a part of Toptal community in the last three years I had an opportunity to work with clients from all over the world on challenging and interesting projects and products.
Being a freelancer gives me the chance to give talks, lectures and workshops while I travel. I enjoy work and travel lifestyle of a digital nomad; I teach and share my experience whenever and wherever I have a chance.
I enjoy building communities as much as teaching. I have co-founded Secret Project - Tech Brokers Guild, as well as NSFW UX Guys. I've formed the biggest Croatian network of Web designers "Web Designers Croatia"(3000+ members) where I organize regular web design and Dribbble meetups and give talks on variety of subjects.
When it comes to work, I look for interesting projects that will employ my problem solving skills, which I can take from idea to a finished product. If I work with a team, mutualy inspiring atmosphere and positive attitude is a priority.
A lot of work I produce is under NDA. Feel free to contact me for aditional examples and details.
Through user interviews and polls I will identify user's thought process and desired reactions toward each task flow segment of the product.
With pen and paper as my primaty tool I will visually communicate abstract concepts with users and team members to generate feedback.
I practice clean and simple design with clear communication with the user, and this is the stage where every part of the product becomes beautyful.
As project evolves I create visual up-to-date document with design desicions to steamline communication with product development team.
*There is so much more to this, so feel free to contact me for more details on how I work and to find out more about my process.
