About Me Image

Hi, I'm Donji!

About Me Hand

I love creating products from 0 to 1 and all of my experiences so far have reflected this. I have a passion for product design, I'm hard working, enthusiastic, and I have experience in the AI and the self-driving car industry.

Moving forward, I am looking for UX/UI and Product Design positions in late stage startups as well as larger established companies, and I am looking to learn the ins and outs on innovating on teams that work on products that serve millions. I'm very excited to offer all of my experience to help my future team out, as well as learning from those who have consistently innovated and created products loved by many.

I love problem solving, talking to users and working with developers to bring designs to life! I am comfortable with learning new technologies and actively enjoy doing so.

I hope you find the projects I have created interesting and that you are also someone I can connect with and learn from. I appreciate that you have taken the time to read this!

P.S. My other name is Theodore, which I use for my email and paperwork.

My Philosophy and Thoughts on the Future

One of my core philosophies is craft is important in order to go from a good to great designer. I'm honing in my programming skills and craft to be able to better collaborate with engineers and tweak their output.

Eventually my goal is to be able to contribute entire UX features in code, and transition to being a UX engineer.

I see AI as the next frontier of UX design. Being able to interact with computers using the natural language we are all use to speaking to each other with is the ultimate user experience. Its been said that the best UI is no UI at all, and that's ringing more and more true as time goes on.

I'm very interested in the intersection of hardware and AI technologies, and having smart objects you can talk to using natural language.

Some of the projects out there that have been sparking my interest lately are: Nothing Forever, anything made by Teenage Engineering, and this AI library for ChatGPT called called LangChain.

The designer Dieter Rams famously said, "Good Design is as little design as possible." I believe the future is less interface and more AI bots.
