Nina

UX strategist at Infinum

I just want to say thanks! Conversations with you helped me reach an entirely new level, one I couldn’t even dream of just a year or two ago. I quickly landed a job at a prominent award-winning product design agency as a UX strategist! Your passion for product design and UX is contagious!

Tony

Freelance UX researcher

Before I started freelancing, I worked as a UX designer and researcher in a local agency. Most of my work was under strict NDAs. Calls with Andrija helped me plan my portfolio so it showcases my skills without impacting the contracts I was under. He also trained me on how to confidently speak to clients which made the transition to freelance so much more seamless.

Daria

UX/UI designer at Artkod

1:1 meetings with Andrija resulted in me getting a design job in such a short timeframe – 2 months to be exact! Besides helping me with my portfolio, he also helped me understand the design process better, as I had a developer background. He helped me bridge that developer to designer gap with ease!

He gave me directions on how to answer common interview questions and tips on how to negotiate my work conditions. I am confident in recommending his mentoring abilities as his approach was very tailored to what I personally needed. He’s my go-to design support, my jack of all design trades guy!

Kristina

Brand manager

Andrija’s help in changing careers was invaluable to me. In a couple of 1:1 sessions, I learned the skills, and tools, that would take me months or more to master. Even to this day, I still seek advice from Andrija. His expertise extends beyond UX and UI design, anyone interested in any kind of design can learn so much from him!

I owe a lot of my current success to his mentoring talents. Learning from his was a fantastic experience all around! If you’d love to have the answers you seek instantly, with strong arguments on why and how – book a call. You won’t regret it!

Madeleine

Senior product manager

If you’re looking to transition to a design job or to level up your skills, look no further! In addition to the crucial core design skills, you’ll learn the intangibles that Andrija has mastered – persuasion, presentation, and empathy.

He speaks the language of users, stakeholders, and engineers equally well. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better mentor – his particular combination of broad experience, patience, and enthusiasm for coaching alongside deep design skill is hard to find.

Antonio

Sales specialist turned UX designer

Andrija helped review my portfolio and he gave me valuable tips on how to present myself and my skills better. The tips varied from UI and style in general, to the story I was telling. He suggested incorporating more of my previous work background in sales. Explaining how well some skills translate to the UX field made all the difference!

The confidence and focus I feel are invaluable! Thanks, Andrija!

Sandra

Entrepreneur turned product designer

When it comes to my portfolio, Andrija helped me tremendously! With his help, I managed to turn my designs from amateur-looking into professional ones. I struggled with whitespace and alignment a lot, but he “made it click”, and most importantly – stick!

I also tended to overuse saturated colors, so we focused on creating more balanced color palettes tailored to the products I was designing. I now prioritize users and not my own personal taste. The biggest takeaway from my review calls is the confidence that I can launch a new career in this creative industry after working years and years in the business field. Andrija, you rock!

Daphne

Junior product designer

I learned SO much in just a couple of sessions! Working with Andrija has been such a game-changer! He made me confident that I can tackle any design problem, no matter how niche or complex!

I always felt like an outsider and I struggled a lot with imposter syndrome. Andrija helped me overcome my doubts and I can’t thank him enough. It made such a massive difference in the way I handle work situations and how I approach design problems. My team lead noticed that too – I just got my first promotion, after a year and a half!
