Information about Kalais Studios

Hello World! :)

My name is Dominik Skarbek-Kruszewski and I have 12 years of experience in creation of websites, movies and animations as well as graphic design. I work as a freelancer.

I have gained an education studying Social Psychology, Computer Science and Communications in Warsaw School of Social Sciences and Humanities in Poland and later I put this knowledge in practice. Years of education and work were helped me to hone matching products with appropriate target audiences, defining and determining the needs and expectations of users and understanding the needs of each client.

When designing I always think of usability which is an extremely important factor in human-computer interactions. Legibility, clearness and an aesthetic and original look are also very important elements of my work.
