Botond Palkó

Carefully handcrafting experiences since we were called Web Designers.

In a nutshell

Digital product designer and team lead based in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, started to design 20 years ago and constantly evolving ever since.

Currently I am serving as Community Lead one of the largest UX teams in Romania at Cognizant Softvision, with 40+ specialists on board. I'm also teaching product design and user experience at the University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca and UX Project.

In my spare time I have founded Design Events, an online calendar that collects creative events from Romania under the same roof, and I'm also tasting the flavour of writing on Medium and speaking at design events.

Professional values

Be kind, it pays off. Be the senior you needed as a junior. Solve the right problem. Leave no room for misinterpretation in your deliverables. You are not your user. Give back to the community.
