    • “I worked with Martin in a team for about two years. Martin is one of the rare senior graphic designers and UX explorers that have an uncanny understanding how to balance a design between the fine lines of the strict grid and a cool and dynamic UI. As a designer he is very generous and unprotective of his ideas. Something that I really appreciated working with him was his ability to always make multiple design suggestions to use as a basis for discussion. He is fast, intuitive and has a great understanding of communicative behavior and emergent services. He has a great talent for diplomacy and could probably work with anybody. More, Martin is by far the most stylish man I know and he was a constant inspiration for creative attire.I worked with Martin in a team for about two years.

    • “He is the one of the most creative person I've ever met. With full of creative energy, he always goes to the goal directly and effectively. No cheating, trick nor betraying. His direction always reaches the core value of HUMAN EXPERIENCE. And another amazing thing I saw from him was that his idea comes from something which is not related with design thing at all. Sometimes his idea sounds like a sort of dream. But he has the solution to realize it onto real product at the same time. I can say that 2 years with him was definitely fantastic. He never taught me anything, but I've learnt many ways of creative thinking from him. That's Martin. As a director of design department, he becomes the creativity instead of being a manager.He is the one of the most creative person I've ever met.

    • “I wish there were more people like Martin, with a vision and point of view on future experiences, a firm stand against mediocrity, while maintaining a curiosity and openness for new impressions. Whether you agree with him or not, Martin gets you thinking of what could be and what should be, how things could be different by way of exploring the border between what is impossible, and what is possible. Martin is a voracious consumer of information, well-read on present and upcoming trends. I appreciate him most for his value looking at the next, next step beyond, daring to voice the crazy blockbusting ideas and ugly truths in a way most people don't.I wish there were more people like Martin, with a vision and point of view on future experiences, a firm stand against mediocrity, while maintaining a curiosity and openness for new impressions.

    • “I have worked alongside Martin for several years, designing new user experiences for Sony Ericsson. He is one of the most creative people that I know: as well as having a tireless capacity to come up with ideas all by himself, he will joyfully run with (or riff on) someone else’s idea. Martin also has a strong vision of where things are going both short term and long term, and is an exceptional presenter and communicator. In short, what stands out for me is Martin’s creativity, vision, enthusiasm, visual sensibility, and communication skill.”
