Brands i worked with


It has truly been a pleasure to work with Dominik who is an extremely talented product designer with a passion to build beautiful, seamlessly working products. Dominik has been driving the product design from the early sketches all the way to the production environment where we do lean development and continuous deployment. He has been an important link ensuring the communication in between different design teams, business and engineering. Dominik's frontend skills ensure his designs take also the engineering into account. I can warmly recommend Dominik to lead product design and wish to be able to work with him some day in the future again.

Kaisa S. Product Director at Unity Technologies

Dominik is an incredible product designer, who displays an outstanding ability to understand the business, it's customers and can transform that to beautiful product UX. His strong understanding of frontend technologies also allows him to work with the development team very efficiently. I would get the chance to hire Dominik again, I'd do so in a heartbeat.

Tuomas R. Senior Director at Unity Technologies

Dominik is very enthusiastic, reliable, driven professional and one of the nicest guys to work with. Always punctual, energetic and careful colleague that cannot be overestimated.

One of the nicest co-successes that we had with Dominik was when Dominik found the necessary time (though he was overworked) to help me win the biggest deals at Nosto. A wise team player and ready to deal with difficult situations and solve the problems on time. I would highly recommend working with Dominik.

Pekka K. Investor & Partner at Nosto

Dominik and I were working hand-in-hand to create the best user experience on the fashion mobile app we were developing together. While he was in charge of the product design, I was leading the product vision and I really enjoyed our close collaboration on brainstorming on ideas, concepting them together and applying them to the app.

Dom is very fast and good at concepting different versions of an idea, iterate fast on it, until we come to the best satisfying version from a PM and designer point of view. Besides his technical skills, he's a great person to work with, very passionate to develop and create new ideas, and transparent, loyal and honest in his work ethics. I would love to work again on a future project with him, if we had the opportunity to.
