I am Marko, a product designer from Belgrade

More than 20 years of experience in various roles, leading small Open Source projects and founding my own IT start-up made me who I am today. I’ve built my expertise around understanding how design facilitates communication between brands and customers and how intuitive and meaningful solutions make a difference.

I am currently working with Catena Media as a Lead UX designer, using all the skills I’ve gained on this journey.

Experience

AskGamblers is one of the leading brands of Catena Media – a leading provider of high-value online leads.
As a Senior UX designer responsible for the AskGamblers brand, my task was to enhance the overall UX by incorporating latest practices and improving design workflow. It began by migrating the designs to Figma and creating the design system, followed by a lot of UX research and ideation, which ultimately led to adoption of a whole new design direction.
