Oy. I'm Damjan.
A design researcher from the hen-shaped country of Slovenia, living in breathtaking Norway. Working as a design research lead at Cisco.
From 2015 to 2017, was the Head of UX at GVC, one of the biggest gaming holdings (bwin, Ladbrokes, Gala, Coral, SportingBet). Built, scaled and managed a cross-location team of 20+ designers & researchers.
On my quest to change the world, I designed products for tiny startups as well as the big guys like Bosch, CNN, Deutsche Bahn and Mayo Clinic.
As a researcher, I traveled the world and worked with people from Finland to Sudan and Bangalore to Portland. As an entrepreneur, I founded a VC-backed startup that helps small business tell their stories. I studied Media Communication in Slovenia and defended my Computer Science PhD in Finland and Slovenia.
