Kaloyan Petrov

I am a Product Designer from Bulgaria, holding a BA degree in Graphic Design from New Bulgarian University. I have multidisciplinary experience in Product Design, UX & UI Design and Front-end Development.

My goal is designing for success, creating tools that keep users delighted and productive. I'm striving for projects that are significant, demand creative problem solving and exceptional team collaboration.

12 Years of Experience

For the past 12 years I have been working as a consultant. Major focus of my work is Product Design, User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX) design. From non-profits and startups to well-established companies, I have helped many extraordinary clients to define, design and develop successful products and services.

During that time, I have worked with many remote teams on virtually any framework from simple Kanban boards to meticulously organized Scrum project management systems. I have successfully collaborated with stakeholders from developers, designers and POs on daily tasks, to managers and CEOs solving advanced problems.

I have the tools and mindset to solve user problems and to achieve business objectives through design. I adapt and learn fast, I am naturally adventurous, curious and motivated to face challenges in new areas.

I strongly believe that smart solutions come out of diverse knowledge and multidisciplinary skills. As a result, I have been developing my technical skills in the field of front-end engineering for over 12 years now. Being confident in design and engineering helps me solve problems better, communicate with stakeholders easily, and generally enjoy a process that contributes in a meaningful and practical way.

In addition to and through my professional practice, I have participated in multiple public engagements – speaking on conferences, teaching courses and as a judge in multiple contests. I have also helped organize open source community events like Drupal Camps and Drupal Roadshow in Bulgaria. Being involved in a community as a leader has brought me tremendous sense of fulfillment.

I love to share, inspire and guide people in their abilities to be more creative and successful. Consequently, I truly aspire for opportunities that combine my design and development work with the ability to guide and inspire others.
