Hello there —
I'm Marko Masnjak. Designer and builder of digital products.

I’m a design leader based in Chicago with over 10 years of experience designing and building digital experiences with organizations ranging from early-stage startups to Fortune 500 companies.

My work focuses on empowering customers at the intersection of design, technology, and business through simple, intuitive digital experiences.
