Product Designer, Co-founder & Maker

Hey, my name is Luka, a freelance designer turned founder and maker. Contact me or follow my journey and learn from my mistakes.

Product designer

I taught myself how to design at the age of 16 when my Counter-Strike team needed a logo and a banner. Fast forward a few years and through a whole lot of hard work, I became a product designer. Over the last 7 years, I’ve:

  • Started my journey with an internship in the biggest Slovenian IT company Marand, working on the first versions of better.care
  • Worked with local and international digital agencies, such as Povio Labs, Hyper, Kamino, Koncepted
  • Designed the first version of the mobile app for a Y-combinator backed startup, Eva
  • Designed one of the leading esports apps, Upcomer. It earned 4.8/5 stars from 5K+ ratings on the app stores and it’s currently one of the leading apps providing esports content
  • Led design on the various parts of the mobile app for GlobaliD, startup founded by Greg Kidd, Initial investor and advisor for Twitter, Square, Ripple etc.
  • Worked on over 200 various design projects in total

Some of the other companies I worked with:

Co-founder

I’ve co-founded two companies, Clover Labs and Doggo, to scale my work as a freelancer. Clover Labs is a venture studio and Doggo is a local dog-sitting platform that got great traction and became a standalone business. Becoming a founder motivated me to develop other skills, such as marketing, sales, business and HR, besides design.

Clover

Creative studio helping clients through the process of growing their product from an idea to sustainable business.

Doggo

Doggo is a regional dog sitting and walking marketplace that connects busy dog owners with dog sitters.

Maker

Following people like Pieter Levels, Derek Sivers, Ryan Hoover inspired me to start launching my own products. I was fascinated by the idea, that you can create build almost anything you want, all you need is a laptop and some free time.

My goal is not to build a billion-dollar, groundbreaking startup. It’s the opposite, I want to build simple products that I can later turn into small businesses.
