Hello (web) surfer!
I’m Viktor Golias. Product designer creating design systems.
I believe in a holistic approach in designing digital products. Design solutions should meet user needs, consider technical implementation complexity and reach business goals.
I have worked with incredible people in different environments (product team, international digital agency, freelancing and as a co-founder of a startup).
As a part of FJORD's Berlin team worked on online services of one of the five oldest automotive company, ŠKODA Auto.
I operated on many levels of design and helped to build complex, highly modular architecture to meet various country-specific business goals.
Mentoring early-midstage startups to overcome their mainly UX problems and producing visual design solutions to boost their growth.
Responsible for entire iOS platform (design + code) and overall User Experience + Co-founder.

Decision making is really hard these days. Things are changing quickly. But there are principles, which don't change - Mental Models.
Learn and remember these fundamental multidisciplinary principles through visual thinking - sketches. And make more intelligent decisions.
After finishing my Master Thesis in Artificial Intelligence, entrepreneurial endeavors took me to startup accelerator based in Prague. After failing, there was a question in the air - What's next?
Speaking with new people from the design community helped me to realize the challenges & opportunities behind expanding industry of digital design.
I ended up freelancing, later joined FJORD crew and currently shaping ticket selling experience of LondonTheatreDirect.
I have experience with building digital products since 2008 (design or development, sometimes simultaneously).
I'm interested in improving my own thinking. Therefore I started exploring the concept of Mental Models (through visual thinking technique). Occasionally I tell photo stories as an amateur photographer, volunteer for local charity and teach cuban salsa.
I'm always open to speak about possibilities of cooperation.
Don't hesitate to contact me.
