Jonas Lekevicius

designs and builds digital things.

Now 28 years old, living in Vilnius, Lithuania. I have been designing and developing for close to 15 years, and hold a BA degree in Graphic Design from Vilnius Academy of Arts.

Currently I am independently designing and building new apps, trying to create something both useful and delightful.

Previously I was Head of Product Design at health and beauty marketplace Treatwell and co-founded an app design and development agency Lemon Labs (later acquired by Treatwell). I have also been lecturing in Vilnius College of Design and co-founded an analytics startup Socilyzer.

As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to both design and code.

As a designer, I have created over a hundred websites, a bunch of games, about 20 apps and 2 magazines. I've also dabbled in 3D, animation, procedural design, edited a couple of movies and even acted in a few. When designing, I focus on information architecture, typography, usability, simple user interface and interaction design.

As a developer, I have been coding my own ideas all the time. It started with Flash games. I later switched to building websites, beginning at the time when tables were the new hotness, and journeying through CSS, XHTML, jQuery and now, React. At one time I worked as a Flash game builder, another time a Ruby on Rails developer.

All the time, I love to play with new technologies. Building apps since that became possible, programming drones in 2013, now, experimenting with AR and deep learning. I love this and hope this crazy ride of new tech will never stop.
