About Marko Dugonjić
Marko is a designer, speaker and author based in Sacramento, California. Currently, he manages the design team at SymSoft Solutions.
Before that, Marko funded a nano-scale User Experience consultancy Creative Nights in Velika Gorica, Croatia and has been a member of editorial staff at Smashing Magazine.
Marko is a father of two little ninjas and a princess. He is interested and involved in many things, but mostly the art, nature, sports and on top of it — the family life. By trade he is a fitness trainer. But that’s another story.
His first steps in the industry were beyond good taste and he always says he can’t remember where these first designs disappeared. However, some of the recent work is featured in Creative Nights portfolio. Nowadays, Marko is focused on studying User Experience Design, Typography and Web Standards, especially the idea of One Web.

The layout is based on a flexible grid of thirds. Headlines, subheads and navigation are set with FF Meta and body text is set with FF Meta Serif. Typeset with TypeTester. Web fonts served by Typekit.
The website is powered by WordPress with addition of a few modified plugins. The rest of the tweaks are questionable programming attempts and modifications of the original code. Don’t ask what is tweaked, we honestly can’t remember.
