SELECTED CASE STUDIES

NetPath™

If an IT guy gets complaint like “Hey, Jira is slow today!” then NetPath™ is the is the right product to use. It's a brand new feature of Network Performance Monitor, that allows administrators to troubleshoot complex hybrid IT networks by discovering, visualizing and analyzing the dynamic network paths from source to destination including the internet portion of the path.

Orion Platform Redesign

Look and feel of Orion® (IT monitoring suite) is outdated. Orion consist of 14 individual modules that can plug together into a single monitoring platform. There is no shared nor reusable library of UI elements and patterns which leads to an inconsistent look and feel. This was a really huge project to tackle. But we've made it.

Sometimes is great to forget about all the seriousness and company constraints and just get into the flow and have fun. From time to time I take on some logo, business card, corporate identity design project but mostly I really like 3D modeling and smaller industrial design projects, or just sketch on a paper etc.
