Who Am I
Born and raised in Czech Republic, I spent my teenage years learning the basics of digital design and getting involved in the tech industry. At the start of my career, I spent most of my time freelancing and I was also lucky enough to be given the opportunity to work on various projects from Czech Republic, Belgium, UK and USA.
Life was good for a while, but after completing my master’s degree in Advanced Economics at University of Technology in Brno, I realized that my career was missing something and I decided to move to Asia. This presented me with life-changing experiences that would change me for the better in both my working and personal life.
I spent a couple of months living the digital nomad lifestyle in Thailand before finally deciding to settle down in the bustling city of Kuala Lumpur. This opened new doors for me as it was the first time in my life that I have been engaged in projects for Asia-Pacific companies in a wide range of industries and worked on projects with an audience of millions.
2017 was an important year for me: I had worked on three significant projects for clients in Singapore, Malaysia & Hong Kong which gave my career the step I needed to start looking for new opportunities. I then landed a job at Althea Korea and currently hold the title of Lead UX/UI Designer.
Quality product design to me isn’t just about looking good on a screen or numbers on a spreadsheet, it has become such an essential step in allowing companies to connect with their customers, effectively building bridges between networks and people.
