Originally trained as a Medical Illustrator, Danko has since branched from this discipline and built up his skillset beyond most conventional creative role criteria. Danko relocated to Berlin in 2014 after concluding a Teaching position as the Instructor of Design for the Technical Communications Certificate at George Brown College in Toronto, Canada.

Danko strives to constructively integrate clear visual design thinking into development cycles, experimenting with ideas and iterating often.

His design process is both analog and digital, combining traditional and modern methods, mediums, tools, materials and stimuli to explore ideas and scale solutions for intelligent audiences. He also operates DANKOMADE, a sustainable furniture studio.

After four years working on mobile games, app and interface  UI & UX, corporate identity, branding and marketing, Danko is now actively seeking a challenging full-time senior creative role in Berlin, or beyond.
