My work spans IoT and digital twins, infographics and data visualization, cartography and spatial orientation, atomic content and contextual information. Latest collaborations include core IoT services being deployed today by tier 1 companies from Scandinavia.
Areas of interest
Transcending limits of physical and digital user interfaces with IoT. Providing best one for each use-case, and having them all work in sync.
Using digital twins and live data feeds to enable assistance from anywhere, anytime. Making decisions with best people, not the nearest ones.
Using visualization, sonification, physicalization to unveil states and events in a complex system, make them understandable to any user.
Democratizing analytics with dashboards and research portals. Supercharging advanced users with API access and in-depth resources.
Providing meaningful and trustworthy automation based on a deep understanding of workflows, people's habits, and legal boundaries.
Spreading the value of data beyond silos. Creating data brokerages that operate with security, integrity, and GDPR in mind.
My work has repeatedly led to positive business outcomes, great user feedback and professional recognition in design, journalism and statistics.
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.
