Ivan is an Interaction Designer and creative technologist, currently finishing his last year of MFA in Interaction Design at Umeå Institute of Design, Sweden, where he’s collaborating with biologists and engineers on bio-based wearables.
As a designer, Ivan finds himself being a mediator between different disciplines. He spent a year at IDEO as Interaction Design Intern. During his time in San Francisco, he joined startup called v18 as a Creative & Strategy Partner, pushing people being more outdoorsy by leveraging circular economy as a service.
Besides design, he likes to brew beers, solder some electronics, and play with hardware.
He saw LOTR at least 20 times, wore headgear 13 years ago, played too much WoW in his teenage years and could do a kick-flip or shove-it when necessary.
