Marin Basic
In the business of creating great user experiences.

My process of designing experiences and solving problems is collaborative, hands-on, and iterative. I have a holistic view of user experience design with a strong ability to synthesize it in beautiful and intuitive user interfaces. In my career, I have been actively involved with marketing and brand strategy, which has helped me to see a bigger picture when immersed in creative thinking and visual storytelling.

Prior to founding the studio, I have worked in advertising for The Coca-Cola Company and for Jumeirah group in Dubai where I gained an unusual multi-disciplinary background that reflects in my work today.

I am a straight-talking pragmatist. I don't like unnecessary jargon or drawn-out processes - I say it how it is. It's one of the reasons people like working with me.

On the projects I collaborate with some extraordinary and talented people and as a result continuously delivers extraordinarily.
