I feel most comfortable dedicating myself to one or two high-impact initiatives at a time, often for years. I relish delayed gratification that comes with profound insight and challenging the status quo.
Co-founded the digital product design school, operating from Slovenia. We run community meet-ups, offer training courses, and organize design internships with leading companies in the region.
Contributed to 6-figure revenue at the Slovene cloud innovator, by implementing prestudies. Established and scaled design operations to meet 200% company growth over a 4 year period.
Supported a global telecom OEM for 4 years. A series of prestudies helped shape their IoT services portfolio, while better design integration in production helped reduce cost & time to market.
Led the graphics desk at Slovenian newspaper to international recognition in 3 years. Co-producted the regular section Objektivno, that pioneered graphic & data journalism in the region.
Consulted a Scandinavian MedTech OEM over a period of 2 years. Helped validate their first digital twin. Succesfully advocated for a bespoke design system, accelerating development of others.
Helped the international manufacturer deploy collaborative robots to factories in under a year. Improved human/robot interaction and accelerated deployments by co-creating a design system.
I seldom know exactly where I am going. Where is the fun in being sure about everything? I venture into the unknown step-by-step, taking controlled risks, accumulating successes along the way.
As an individual, I am limited in the complexity I can comprehend and the scale of work I can deliver. The challenges I am interested in pursuing tend to require a dedicated effort from an integrated team.
