Matus Hatala is a UX/UI Designer with a background in web development and an interest in 3D design. He currently works remotely at A11 Studio.

With over 6 years of professional experience designing apps & websites he's been fortunate enough to work with a large variety of clients, agencies and he often collaborates with other designers & creatives.

His work focuses on user satisfaction and making sure the product meets the company’s and user’s needs. He creates minimalistic, clean, and modern-looking digital products.

He values design that has an impact on people's lives and society. He believes designers are becoming architects of human behavior and in many ways, they're influencing the perception and feelings of the people who come across their best work.

His ultimate goal as a designer is to help people and make their lives easier through technology and design.

As a designer who’s younger than 25 years old, he's been selected to join the Awwwards Young Jury panel and contribute to the community by scoring sites and sharing his view on the next wave of digital design.

If you're wondering how to pronounce his name, it would be /mattoosh/. In English, it would be Matt.

Now that you know so much about him, why not send him a short message about yourself and your project to start working on it together →
