Hi, I’m Patrik

UX Designer based in Brno

I believe a good design is not just about coming up with great solutions but also about solving the right problem. In my work, I try to make sure that users and their problems are well understood before jumping to the drawing board.

Lately, my focus is on end-to-end experience and interaction design but I try to sharpen my skills in all parts of the UX field. And I’m a dog person who loves Lego.

Experience

Oracle Netsuite   /   Senior UX Designer 2021 – present
Oracle Netsuite   /   UX Designer 2018 – 2021

As part of the International XD team, I’m working on bringing the Netsuite product closer to the specific needs of people in different countries of EMEA region.

This position gave me the opportunity to design for huge and complex ERP system with a lot 
of challenges and technical constraints that require innovative thinking, rapid prototyping, and an iterative approach. I’ve gained know-how in design systems, learnt to collaborate with a wide group of stakeholders, and got a chance to facilitate several customer visits around Europe as part of a larger research initiative.

Freelance   /   UX/UI Designer 2015 – present

I like to be part of interesting projects – often startups that I can help to grow by arranging usability research, designing websites, products, or corporate identities. For smaller projects, 
I also provide marketing and business strategy consultations.

InSociety   /   UX/UI Designer 2016 – 2018

In this local digital agency, I worked on an end-to-end design for a variety of projects from websites and e-shops to mobile applications. Many of them were focused on UI. However, I was able to incorporate and improve several UX and research techniques as well.

Also, I was able to lead a smaller development team, mentor a junior designer, prepare several design proposals, and gain a lot of interesting business experience.

IS4U   /   Information System Developer 2014 – 2016

Coding both backend and frontend of information system for universities. It gave me the technical foundation I often leverage as a designer when communicating with developers.

Although not a design position, it helped me to improve my soft skills. While taking care of my own customers, I learnt about communication for impact, time management, and collaboration.
