Cześć, I’m Tomasz Zelmański, a lead/senior designer from Gdańsk, Poland.

I'm 36 years old, so I've been designing stuff for more than half of my life. I began in the early 2000s, primarily doing branding work. I've been working with digital products for almost ten years. It's also worth noting that I've worked remotely for the majority of my career, which wasn't always the case a decade ago.


I worked on a wide range of digital products, from simple apps and websites to extremely complex systems for B2B solutions like CRMs and intranets.

I'm an all hands-on-deck type of designer, who is capable of taking a project from A to Z — helping in the discovery phase, facilitating workshops, planning and designing user experiences, and delivering final user interfaces alongside great prototypes. When needed, I can also get my hands dirty with branding and asset creation.

I enjoy solving complex problems, developing design systems, and creating microanimations.
