Hi, I'm Dragan Babic.

I am a designer, well sort of. I usually describe myself as a designer who focuses on the most overlooked parts of design.

It is my core belief that in order to be a contributing function of business, design must not be allowed to be perceived as this magical, veiled activity reserved only for the chosen ones. This is why I work with people and organizations struggling with design, so I can prove that design, when practiced in the open and honestly, can be an asset to everyone.

It’s hard for me to put a label exactly on what I do, so I’ll try to give you a few examples of what I’ve done before.

Scroll on down, I’m sure you’ll get it.

I’ve helped a furniture maker launch a direct-to-consumer channel to great success, set up and established leadership for multiple creative production teams, and ship internal-facing software.

Now that you’ve hopefully gotten a better understanding of what I did for others in the past, here are a couple of ideas of how I can help you today.

    Lead your design teams in the capacity of senior/lead/CDO.
    Support you and your teams on your path from 0 → 1 product.
    Help you figure out your brand.
    Help you figure out your product and marketing strategies.
    Make your design teams work better with engineering.
    Help your designers be better at their jobs.
    Help your organization attract and retain creative talent.
In order to make this easier I’ve defined a couple of areas people usually need help with, and framed them as services I’ve described as best as possible. Maybe you can recognize your pain point.
