In an interview with Proto.io, Jakub gave a very profound advice to aspiring mobile app designers about how to improve their skill –
“I think the best way to improve your skills is through constant hard work. A very helpful way is by creating side projects… a lot of side projects. It doesn’t matter whether the majority of those projects will never be realized or will simply fail. It is important because it really helps you to see a project from different perspectives other than that of a designer and to learn stuff you would never learn from client work.
Find your favourite designers and study their work. Every day, check out websites with inspirational design and save your favourite designs to your personal collection so that you can browse them at any time. Another advice would be the classic way of self-improvement, that is, to read a lot of articles and books about design.”

In another interview with Frank Rapacciuolo, Product Designer at Musixmatch, Jakub explains the role of the Designer in our digital life – “I think that there is more design everywhere around us than we realize and that’s why we shouldn’t underestimate it, as it always influences our decisions and our activities. That means the duty of every designer should be applicability in the first place and of course to create an aesthetic experience for the user.”
