I'm a Hungarian designer currently residing and working in Zurich, Switzerland. Over the past 20 years, I have collaborated with non-profit organizations, startups, design agencies, and corporate companies throughout Europe and the US, contributing to the development of products that are used by millions on a daily basis.
Having begun my career as a developer, my approach has always been grounded in solving tangible problems with real data. Rather than focusing solely on speculative design concepts, I prioritize practical problem-solving. As a versatile designer, I enjoy challenging myself across various aspects of the design process, including user research and testing, prototyping, a touch of coding, and, of course, visual design.
When I'm not in front of a screen, I strive to spend quality time with my newborn daughter, playing my guitar and singing to her, what for some reason cheerish her a lot.
It all began in high school when I created my first website back in 1998. This early foray into web development sparked my passion for the digital world. During my college years, As an engineer student, I joined IAESTE, a non-profit organization, as a volunteer. This experience exposed me to Linux, PHP, and MySQL, and I soon found myself creating dynamic websites for the organization. One of my notable projects during this time was developing a Facebook clone for foreign students interning in Hungary in 2002. The success and interest generated by this website gave me the confidence to pursue a career in web development.
As I delved further into web development, I found myself increasingly drawn to the design aspect and the opportunity to solve the design challenges I encountered. This led me to work for various design agencies in Budapest, where I steadily climbed the ladder from a junior designer to the position of art director. During this time, I had the privilege of working on prestigious brands such as OTP Bank, McDonald's, BMW, Mini, Vodafone, and Hungarian Post, among others.
In 2013, I received an exciting opportunity to join a local startup in Switzerland. A few years later, I had the privilege of attending a Dribbble meet-up where I met Gleb Kuznetsov, the Lead Designer of Fantasy at the time. As a long time fan of their work, I was soon invited to become part of Fantasy, a highly acclaimed design agency operating out of New York and San Francisco. Working for them exposed me to global brands like Netflix, Facebook, Lonely Planet, and USA Today. It was an incredible experience to contribute to products used by millions of people daily, and I particularly enjoyed working on projects with a wide-reaching impact, such as defining the online presence of sports entities like UFC or collaborating with prestigious brands like Royal Caribbean and IMG.
My journey has been an exciting one, taking me from my early steps in web development to the thriving tech hub of San Francisco. I am grateful for the diverse experiences and opportunities that have shaped my career, and I look forward to continuing to create impactful and user-centered designs that resonate with audiences worldwide. It only took me 15 years, but as they say: practise and experience lead you to the Royal Albert hall.
As a freelance designer, I have had the privilege of collaborating with various clients to help them achieve their goals and create impactful designs. Some notable clients I have worked with include Streamlayer, Campus and IMG who I have established a longstanding relationship with.
