Hello, my name is Greg Palkovics and I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Budapest, Hungary.

I was an early maker, builder and storyteller, always looking for ways and ideas to build. I studied sculpture, fine art, product design, engineering, and digital media. When I discovered Interaction Design, I saw the opportunity to build both physical and digital objects that truly understand the user experience. I love using a multidisciplinary design approach in order to explore opportunities and find creative solutions. Combining engineering, design and consumer electronics, I generate ideas through quick iterative prototyping in order to develop a functioning and thoughtful experience.

I geek out on the small, but important details, the ones that most would not notice unless it was missing. I want people to feel that through my design process they have been understood, and deeply considered.
