I’m Ivan, a designer, and creative technologist. Currently, I am product designer at Abacum, YC W21 batch startup based in Barcelona. Besides startup, I’m working as a Visiting Lecturer at Umeå Institute of Design, where I also hold my MFA degree in Interaction design.
As a designer, I love being a mediator between different disciplines. In my professional journey, I spent over 5 years working at companies such as IDEO, Martian Ventures, and FROLIC, building products, strategies, and vision for numerous clients, such as Hulu, Mercedes, IKEA, 1848 Ventures, Getinge, IDEO CoLab, ERSTE bank, Croatian Design Society and more.
Besides design, I like to brew beers, solder some electronics, and design with code.
I saw LOTR at least 20 times, wore headgear 13 years ago, played too much WoW in my teenage years and could do a kick-flip or shove-it when necessary.
