Design is a tool which enables me to have a positive impact on society and human behavior. As a user experience designer I keen to focus on human, human interaction and relationships. On the other hand, I expand my understanding of the multiple agencies, dependencies, and relations that make up our world.
My aim is to be ethical and responsible towards society and environment when working in general.
I am critical to social issues. I am especially focused on human-technology relationships and interactions, embodied interaction, interactions between humans and humans and other species.
WORKS I AM PROUD OF
My main focus these days is a startup ImpromptMe. I designed the app which aims to help it's users to meet in person through the efficiency of online connectivity. The mission of this project is to bring the focus back to face-to-face interactions. We are currently developing a conference version of the app, which will simplify networking on the conferences.
Happy Hours is another startup I am currently involved in. It's a marketing tool for venues, which provides benefits for its users. The app suggests personalized happy hour offers for the customers based on their previous orders.
How can we google more efficiently?
In my diploma thesis, I was rethinking the search functionality of Google. I was focused on how can it work more efficiently, and how can people get the most objective information.
Besides that, I am interested in the field of haptic design and embodied interaction. Interaction with software systems in more natural, human way. Doing research in this field led me through a very mundane, frustrating and also heavily embodied experience of working behind the computer on a day to day basis. I don’t believe that technology has to create a wedge between our human relation to touch. On the contrary, I consider embodied interaction as one of the possible ways in which to bring the human touch to digital technology.
I published my article in a Smashing Magazine.
In another research and art project, I am currently involved in we want to go beyond human-centric design and art practice. We seek ways to enable communication between and a better understanding of mushrooms, plants, and animals, including humans. To achieve these we use performance, research, hacking, writing, designing and collective meetups as methods for knowledge production.
