It’s been almost two years since I have worked in a self-governing organization, and it seems like a good time to reflect on it.

Emocje i empatia w projektowaniu UX Strefa Designu SWPS Empatia pozwala spojrzeć na świat z perspektywy drugiego człowieka. To może być jednak trudne dla projektanta.

The result may not be particularly aesthetically pleasing, but at least you’ll please the client. The ongoing battle between clients and creative departments is: ‘How big is too big?’ How about 1px?

Digital media has fundamentally reshaped the brand landscape, creating the opportunity to stretch the paradigm a bit further.
