Ivan is an Interaction Designer, currently studying MA Interaction design at Umeå Institute of Design in Sweden, where he is exploring human-centered design, ethnography, sustainability and experience prototyping. Between BA and MA, he did a year and a half of UI/UX design work in an agency, a startup, freelancing and collaborating with multidisciplinary teams on various projects. As a member, he developed and designed multiple projects for the Croatian Design Society.

Besides design, he likes to brew beers, solder some electronics, play with hardware and commits on git lines of code.

He saw LOTR at least 20 times, wore headgear 12 years ago, played too much WoW in his teenage years and could do a kickflip or shove-it when necessary.

Design values

Tech-aware and human-driven! Think's that's a recipe for designing good and sustainable products with people in the center.

Life values

Al dente pasta with freshly grated Grana Padano. Splattering legs in the sea. A kiss of a loving person.
