Hi, my name is Michal

Who I am

I am a versatile designer who thrives at the intersection of technology, design, leadership, strategy, and human interactions. I am an optimistic enthusiast who likes to have fun even when things go sideways. I’m curious by nature and absorb learnings from others. I love cycling in the forest and walking in the mountains. At home, I listen to music and take care of my plants.

My career journey includes roles like Head of Design at Pipedrive (CRM software), Design Lead at Deltatre (sports and entertainment video products), and Creative Director at Ataccama (data management software).

What makes me happy

I enjoy working with people, helping them grow and accomplish their goals while tackling intricate obstacles. My brain likes decoding complex challenges and turning them into elegant solutions. I like friendly, open-minded teams that help people lead happy, meaningful lives rich in enjoyable milestones.
