Technology is no longer the privilege of a few nerds. It has become a powerful thing, accessible by the masses and a part of their everyday life. People use it to accomplish their everyday tasks, or do the work for which they are paid. They do not care so much about what business are you in, or if you have some slightly better features than some of your competitors. And when using it, they expect it to work for them, not against. At every point where your product and a human meet lies an opportunity. Opportunity to screw things up or to rock and just do the job that is expected. And that point is where I do my work.
Humanise technology. Simplify complicated.
In 2006, when I was 12 years, I really loved technology. I could spend all the day imagining, what future will look like. I was mind-blown by how magical it is to type the letters to one device and instantly receive it in another. At that time I started to draw websites, helping people getting their businesses online and promoting them. These years of experiences lead naturally to point where I am now. With 4 years of experience, having worked on various digital projects. I helped to shape client’s products, build their image and identity. All this work has one common theme. And it is about humanising technology and making people understand, how could they benefit from using it.
“Cooperation with Slavo was great. I appreciate his approach to the design and simplicity in the work he does. Open communication is really important in business relationship and I am glad that it is also Slavo's value. He tried to exactly understand our needs and expectations. He is able to define the ideas of cooperation in advance and then follow the verbal agreements. I highly appreciate his professionalism and reliability. He is the designer, who I will contact if I need.”

It’s your business, and it has to be respected.
You are the boss of your business and there is no doubt you understand it well. It may be tricky to find the right solution. Suggesting solutions without understanding your capacity and needs is like playing roulette. Russian roulette with a fully loaded gun. Because working on the wrong things may kill your business. Sometimes you just need to embrace what you are already doing, sometimes you need to change direction. And even sometimes what you’ll truly need is not the thing you are looking for. Let’s talk and find out what is right for you and what steps you need to take to accomplish your goal.

Be sexy, and know it.
Have you ever experienced that moment when a beautiful lady or gent passes by and you turn your head and suddenly can’t say a word, with a head full of blooming adjectives? With only one goal in mind - you got to know him/her better. Visual style is how your product looks, and its power is to make your product grab attention. Like a clever dress, it can highlight your strong sides and slightly cover areas for improvements. I will help you find these strengths and make it sexy for customers. When it’s done in harmony with your product, it has a magical effect and it just works for you.
“I have talked to few designers for Ecoheart. Finally, I decided on Slavo, and now I can say that it was right decision. He was able to create exactly what I had imagined and what I expected. His sense for understanding and detail played a very important role. Every single part of the design made sense and was perfectly done. I am honored that someone like Slavo became a part of Ecoheart.”
Roman Kovacs, CEO ecoheart
“Slavomir is a very talented and hard-working designer, and working with him was a very pleasant experience. Even though the illustrations we commissioned to him had a very short-notice deadline, Slavomir managed to deliver well ahead of time, showing great competence. I strongly recommend using his services!”

Rich experience comes from small interactions
Time as a 4th dimension has its place in digital space. Interacting with digital surfaces may look still, but its full potential is far beyond that. Adding that dimension to your design may create delightful experiences. When you scroll, something moves; when you press button, it morphs into new screen. Animation brings your design to life and communicates with people on the new level.
Let people enjoy using your product
Does your users feel pain or joy? Do they rely on your product daily or does it just slowly fade out from their life? What do you want them to feel? How do you want to bring them value? Well, these are really difficult questions. Using the right tools and industry’s best practices may help you find the right answers. Let me help you with that.
