About

When I’m not thinking about travelling Japan or biking in Scotland, my mind is set upon the future of the touch based interaction.

Though I didn’t plan it this way, pure technical & design education and the variety of different subjects get me the stage that I’ve become a information based interaction designer of sorts. I know general front-end coding techniques, but it’s mainly design combined with some good old fashioned typography ensuring my daily UX decision going right direction.

We blend technology, UI & storytelling together

Recently, I blend technology, UI & storytelling together. I find myself in the position where combining these skills and translating granularity of those relationships brings benefits to entire team. I believe in progressive enhancement, responsive web design & the customer experience and bring brands and people closer together. I’ll probably spend all my allowance on design books and wear a shorts almost entire year …

I’m also proud to be part of London’s “Digital Agency of the Decade” so called R/GA.

Stop by and say, Hi even you are the client, colleague, or just student passing by.

Lectures

Enthusiasm for design broad me in to the lecturing.  Seemsly after my first presentation at University I realised how communicating right information can change perception of all students / listeners and gradually open discussion about the topic. Democratisation of whole education process open rooms for general discussion but moreover establish passion and pure interest in subject. People driving their own ideas through the model of examples to reach final conclusion.
Lectures listed bellow are taken at academics place, companies, corporation and well as UX based seminars and independent lectures.

My photography is an experiment. It’s not a purpose to sell, advertise or promote myself as a photograph. Im curious about light and colours in contrast with night covered architecture. London gives me incredible opportunity to experiment …

R/GA

“Jiri really knows his stuff. He’s bang up to date with the very latest in UX design, and has the experience to know what’s right for each solution he works on.
And he’s really not scared of hard work! He’ll work his socks off to get a great result, isn’t phased by pressure and gets stuck right into the team to make things happen.
As a Producer it’s lovely to be able to work with someone who not only gets a great job done but who also makes it a pleasure to work with them.” July 4, 2011
