About me

My name is Karel Zídek and I live in Brno in Czech Republic.

As an artist, I create mostly illustrations and concept art. Although I’m creating mostly digitally, using tools like Clip Studio Paint EX, Rebelle, and Autodesk Sketchbook, my favorite tools are fountain pens. With their help, I fill sketchbooks, that I have always on hand.

As a designer, I focus mainly on user interface design but I also design logos, business cards, posters, invitations and various promotional materials. I work with modern tools such as Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo and PagePlus X9, to whom I switched from Adobe products.

I finished my studies of Automation Control and Informatics with specialization in Graphics and its applications at Mendel University in Brno with a master of science in engineering degree.

I’m also working at Mendel University at Department of Informatics as a member of Spatial Hub and Infrastructure teams. My own research is focused on the field of user experience design, object detection within point cloud, computer vision, detection of traffic signs and machine learning.

In my spare time, I enjoy photography and playing the guitar.
