*Now that's a tall order! Perhaps something along the lines of "bringer of product order and visual harmony" would be more on-brand and realistic.
Born in Yugoslavia, spent my formative years in Germany and now living in Australia, with regular slowmading stints in Southeast Asia and Europe.
Designing since '09.
I graduated as Bachelor of Business Information Technology (Honours) at Deakin University, Australia in '08. My career started in 2009, and I've been freelancing remotely since 2018 via Toptal and independently.
Big league experience.
15+ Year Design Veteran.
I'll warn you of paths NOT to take because half the battle is waged in avoiding pitfalls. You'll find that many can design pixels, but few can lead product design.
Quality + Speed.
I don't waste time, and I don't cut corners. This is the cornerstone of my design philosophy, and I only work with clients who share this value.
Pragmatic pixel perfection.
I don't think design-first. I think business-first. Quality has to be high, of course, but without running out of time and budget. It's a balancing act.
Direct and to-the-point.
My approach is a conscientiously candid one. If there's a problem somewhere I'll tell you openly, and I welcome the same in return.
I don't sub-contract.
I do direct, hands-on design work, only connecting you with specialists for unrelated tasks. My approach is all about personal effort and elbow grease.
I work 100% remotely.
Been doing this since 2018 with clients from Australia, Austria, Canada, China, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Spain, New Zealand and the USA.
I lead, collaborate, give and take feedback.
"Strong opinions, held lightly" is another one of my tenents. Basically, I'm a solo jazz act that jams well with others who value quality.
Complex problems: send them my way.
I've never encountered an industry or product, no matter how complex, where I couldn't give a detailed account of the problem, and a solid path forward.
