Ioan Kirilov

Senior Visual UX Designer at Honeywell

London, United Kingdom
It's been my passion for the last ten years or so to come up with a new generation of products - products that ignite our imagination and make us better, faster and stronger instead of alienated, numb and complacent in motionless comfort. This passion has led me to invent unsuspected ways for brands to connect with existing and new consumers and change the way people think, feel and do.
