Hi, I’m Ondrej.

And this site is my digital garage, where I work with my door open.

I'm a designer, generalist, and introvert. Big fan of games, systems, and silly jokes.

These days, I'm exploring the intersection of games, learning, and self-improvement. Asking the question:

How can games make us better humans?

Here I share my learnings, ideas, and creative process through articles and reflections with hand-drawn comics.

If you like what you see, the best way to get my work is to join my email list. A new article goes out every Thursday. (Or read some first.)
