About Me

Who am I, how did I become a designer and get to where I am now? Here are a few facts about me.

Education

My formal design education started when I was 15-years old at School of Applied Arts (4 years), continued at College of Fine Arts (4 years). After a short break I finished College for Creative Marketing (3 years) and then went for masters degree 📖 (2 years) at the same college but never graduated.

My non-formal education is still ongoing. I’ve attended and finished a vast number of seminars, webinars, online and offline courses, walkthroughs, tutorials and online how-to guides 🛠. I’m still thrilled to learn anything new which will sharpen and widen my skillset.

Personal Interests

My name is Neno Papic and I’m from Zagreb, Croatia, EU. I’m a freelance designer and frontend developer. I love design, architecture, nature, animals, music, books and travel (these days not so much). I enjoy chess, all things astrophysics and above all playing with my two sons; Ian (8) and Kai (2).

Expertise

My primary field of interest is UI design, but many years of hanging around developers helped me pick up on their knowledge and achieve pixel-perfect execution. Yes, I’m that guy. Pixel-perfect implementation of any concept is important to me, which means that HTML, CSS, PHP, and especially WordPress quickly became an integral part of my skillset. In fact, I enjoy coding almost as much as I enjoy the design process.

On top of being a UI designer, I also enjoy being involved in other types of design projects, such as; UX design, information architecture, software design, and graphic design. All of this keeps me motivated and sharp, expanding my skillset, and helps me stay on top of my game.

Experience

I have over 20 years of experience in the design industry, having successfully completed 400+ projects for 100+ different clients scattered across 4 continents.

Some of my clients include: T-Mobile, Microsoft, RTL Television, Black & Decker, Rimac Automobili, Republic of Croatia, Gustav Gerig, Corel Magazine, Lacoste, Martens, Vienna Insurance Group, Estée Lauder, Fiat, Philip Morris, Opel and many others.

 

I pride myself on being equally dedicated to every single project, no matter how big or small.

Fees

While pay per project is always a possible option, I do prefer hourly rates. My hourly fee starts at $60 per hour for design work or $65 per hour for frontend work. Feel free to send me a brief so we can discuss the details.

Discounts may apply depending on the complexity and duration of the project.
