Design thinking and design doing

Hi, I’m Tibor. I’m a brand and customer experience design professional.

I work with purpose-driven businesses to help them achieve their social and financial impact.

This website should give you an idea of the companies and people I worked with, the projects I worked on and the brands I helped succeed..

A dynamic identity for system change

For this visionary project, lead by the STEPS Centre – University of Sussex, I were asked to develop a brand, look and feel and website.

The System Change HIVE is a creative space to explore alternative futures. To match its energy and express its always changing nature, I designed a dynamic brand identity that is based on swarming flight patterns of bees. The hive patterns are used on the logo itself and as a decorative element across the website.

One for the love or running and the Manx hills, this is an ongoing project for the Manx Fell Runners, organisers of this fantastic event. Having completed the full 30 miles in 2019, I can finally wear the finishers’ t-shirts I designed.
