Damjan talks about the importance of personal projects and how they can shape your career path. He shares his inspiring story where he spent almost a year building a prototype of an electro-mechanical clock that tells time through liquid numbers, without having any prior experience in mechanics, chemistry, or machining.
Damjan is an interaction and interface designer that over time fell in love with prototyping and inventing new products. He is currently working as an industrial designer in Palo Alto. His latest project is Rhei (hellorhei.com) ‚Äď the electro¬≠mechanical prototype of a liquid clock that uses magnets and ferrofluid to tell time. Before that he had an opportunity to work for several amazing startups and influence the design
and architecture of various apps and services, experimenting with different technologies. His work has been published by media like Discovery, Wired, Guardian, Fastcodesign, BBC... Damjan has won 5 Red dot awards so far.
