Hi!👋 I am Markéta
I am a designer currently living in Brno, Czechia.
I like to design. It can be apps, visual identities, services, you name it. My most recent work is focused on user-centered design, user experience, and interactivity. In my side-projects, I like to create digital art and immersive experiences: generative design, simple games, virtual reality, and Arduino projects.
In my life beyond design, I love being around people. I like going to bars. I like hiking, traveling, and chatting with strangers.
And I also like math.
WHY I DESIGN
When I was eight, I wanted to be an illustrator. At the age of ten, I wished to be a designer of smartphones but they didn't exist back then so I would cut them out of paper and pretend they were real.
When I was fifteen, I wanted to study math and art, but I didn't know how to connect them. When I was seventeen, I started with graphic design and two years later I designed a new visual identity for my high school.
Then I went to study computer science — they offered a graphic design specialization and a lot of math. As a computer science student, I received formal training in programming and algorithmic thinking. As a graphic designer, I learned how to make appealing visuals and create strong concepts.
In my graphic design projects, I would always spend a lot of time researching the market and the client’s needs. This user-centric approach to design turned out to be vital when I encountered HCI and switched to UX design. In the role of UX designer, I use my experience from graphic design along with my programming knowledge to help bridge the gap between users and developers and to contribute to more efficient teamwork.
