I’m Karel Balej, a product designer passionate about designing valuable products for wonderful people across the globe.

I’m a product designer based in Prague with over 6 years of experience in product design, branding, design systems, and communication with design teams.


Throughout my design journey, I've had the pleasure of working with small startups where I truly embraced the magic of teamwork, a deep love for innovative products, and the invaluable opportunity to continuously learn and grow – something that continues to bring me immense joy to this very day.


In addition to these incredible experiences, I also had the privilege of working within a large corporation, where I was entrusted with major projects and generous budgets, initially as a designer and later stepping into a leadership role.


Beyond my design career, I've dedicated the past two years to teaching UX in product development at a university. It's been an absolute delight to share my knowledge with the bright minds of tomorrow, helping them pave their path to success.
