Design, minimalism & typography

My name is Matej [mʌt-eɪ]. My story began in a small seaside town in Slovenia. Aged 13, I joined an after-school class where I handcrafted my first website and it changed my life. It made me who I am today — it made me a designer.

My passion for simple, clean & usable design took me to a journey through Germany, Luxembourg and dropped me off in London, UK — where I currently work as a Lead UX/UI Designer at Auto Trader.

I spend my free time working on personal side projects and create things like Better Web Type, Gutenberg—A Meaningful Web Typography Starter Kit and Quotes on Type.
