Why I do things
The studio was created a couple of years back when I was thinking about how to make more value for people, companies and myself. I always thought I could push things forward and deliver outstanding solutions.
How I work
Using design thinking to create design and experience to transform companies and organisations. Connecting research, insights and knowledge with technology and design to develop a new type of craftsmanship that will change how people experience digital products.
I believe in digital tools and technologies. It's a magical place where all things are possible. We can create solutions for tomorrow's business with modern technologies, design, people, environment and ideas.

My approach to things is constantly changing and evolving. Bringing more fresh thinking into my designs and solutions.
More than ever, we need to think about what we are creating, why we do it and who is it for creating a digital experience. I use a design-driven approach to question things and make the best possible solution.
Basic done right
As people, we tend to overcomplicate things and overload ourselves. There are many options and solutions; we must go to basics and make them right. I want to build a strong foundation for our digital experience so we can build on top of it.
Remote and Async
I believe that we should build our lives around our personal needs and what we want in our lives. Remote work is a big topic now, but for me, it has always been the way I preferred to work and create stuff. I love collaborating with people, but I also love my space to make and think.
Adapt to change
When we focus on good basic things and build strong foundations, we can be flexible with everything that comes our way. Digital is fast-paced, and it changes all the time. We need to keep in mind that things need to be changed or need to adapt.
We should be aware of how we affect our environment and what we can do to minimise our impact. It is not just physical products that need to be made sustainable. It's for digital as well. We still use resources and can create better carbon-neutral solutions suitable for the planet.
I have always been fascinated by traditional crafts and people's skills, which they learned over years of experience. Digital has more change, but I believe we can bring the craft to digital space, such as what tools, techniques, and knowledge we use and apply to our projects.

Michal was a great design partner in the team. I hired and worked with Michal at the Namecheap Cloud Design team for over a year. We collaborated on the product design of EasyWP and overall team processes. I always valued the pragmatism he brought to the work.
He keeps things simple, organized and clear. As I changed company, I trusted Michal to take the lead of the Cloud Design team and right away, he showed great skill in building relationships across the company, caring for the people in the team and advocating for customer-focused product.

Michal worked as a senior visual designer on a strategic project for one of New Zealand's leading brands. Michal did an excellent job on a demanding project, with tight timeframes and competing demands for his time. I was particularly impressed with Michal's professionalism and quality of output.
Throughout the project Michal was a calming presence, and he was a well respected member of the team. The quality of his outputs was also excellent. I really enjoyed working with Michal and hope we get to work together again in the future.
