About me

I am communication designer, interested in information architecture and non-linear media experience. Since 2000, my focus is on graphics, motion and web design. I'm often building myself functional, automation and post processing templates.

Lately, I was working as a visual artist, motion designer and video editor for Elaia Design studio http://www.elaia.sk. I own business license in a field of digital computing services since 2001, I live and work in Bratislava and Košice in Slovak republic.

While trying to deliver useful, contemporary and compatible design outputs, I use frequently paper, pencil and Adobe graphics and animation software, and sometimes Html and basics of JavaScript scripting. I spend a lot of time on preparation phases - abstraction, determination, making reviews, sketching, wireframing, templating, preparing processes automation and a variety of dependent tasks.

My design workflow copies my interests - exploring and understanding of values and terms such as aesthetics, mathematics, nature, noise patterns, model, form, scopes, expressions, perception, cognition, and guidance and backward implementation.

My final design outputs are trying to reach aesthetics both mathematics models simplicity and hahrmony and fit well in time of they're native thus functional occurance.
