I'm a problem solver at heart
& designer on the surface
My name is David Jablonski, I’m a 18-year-old design student & enthusiast from Austria. I grew up near Vienna and I’m currently studying information design in Graz.
While I definitely do not have the same amount of experience as most designers, I’m eager to learn new things and take on new challenges.
When I’m not working or at university, I enjoy playing Ultimate Frisbee or tennis, visiting art galleries, traveling by train and reading books and magazines.
I’m a member of designaustria and Creative Industries Styria.
I was born on 7th of August 1998 in Vienna, Austria. I went to primary school in a small village near Vienna and later went to an international school in Klosterneuburg. Due to most of my lessons being taught in English, I'm now a fluent English speaker. In spring 2016, I did both the Austrian school-leaving exam („Matura“) and the International Baccalaureate Diploma. My IB subjects of choice included Economics, Computer Science and Film.
During my school years, I’ve always looked for exciting side projects to pursue. In those years I’ve worked with national and international organizations, including the Hollywood Music Workshop and the Model European Parliament. Furthermore, in 2015, I did a complete technical and visual redesign of the website of my school. Previously, I’ve been co-organizer and chief designer for an annual school event called Nacht der Talente from 2011 to 2015.
Since October 2016, I'm studying Information Design at the University of Applied Sciences in Graz, Austria. On the side, I work as a freelance designer & developer with clients of all kinds, including international organizations. I aim to create things that are innovative, easy-to-use, unobtrusive, long-lasting & thorough down to the last detail. To learn more about my work & my process, click here.
Films I enjoy include “The Happy Film” by Stefan Sagmeister & Ben Nabors, “Submarine” by Richard Ayoade & “Once” by John Carney.
I believe in side projects as a space to experiment and learn. My current side projects are my YouTube channel, my blog & some other things which are not (yet) available online.
