Connecting the dots... Designer out of passion, IT specialist by training

Hi! I'm Kajetan and I'm your middle man between art and technology.

My passion for design, technological background and a long freelance period allow me to freely communicate with graphic designers, developers and business clients – combining their efforts and filling in the blanks, helping to create useful and comfortable products.

After graduating from the Silesian University of Technology in Gliwice, I have been a member of Hackerspace Silesia and co-hosted the SmartDevCon and PyConPL conferences, I have been working on websites and visual identifications, I was a Frontend Developer in Vattenfall and a UX/UI Designer (tinged with Product Management and Frontend Development) in the american startup Synapse – helping to successfully expand the application from the beta phase into the MVP.

I spend my free time on dancing – bachata (being a member of amateur formation), salsa and kizomba. I also sculpt in clay and travel.

I have had an opportunity to work on several projects with Kajetan, most of all the www.zawadaconsulting.pl website. I appreciate his collaboration for timeliness, proactive approach to the emerging problems and a care for details, especially in the user experience area. We will surely work on new projects again.
