Hello, my name is Gergo Palkovics (Greg) and I was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary.

I was an early maker, builder and storyteller, always looking for ideas and projects to build. I studied sculpting, fine art, product design, engineering, and digital media. Later on in my education, I focused my studies at Interaction Design. I am passionate about using multidisciplinary design approach in order to explore opportunities and find creative solutions. Combining engineering, design and consumer electronics, I generate ideas and stroies 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 aspire to build products and experiences where people to feel that through my design process they have been deeply considered and understood.
