TED: Can Good Design Save Newspapers
TED Talk: life
In 2009, he gave his famous speech at TED conference: ‘Can Good Design Save Newspapers.’ This video hit almost 1,5 million views. As you enter the stage after Al Gore and Bill Gates, you feel an immense pressure. But, as soon as Steve Wozniak of Apple congratulates you, you know it was worthwhile. After all, you stand next to two Google owners and with them around, it is hard not to feel like the world is your oyster.

European Newspaper of
The Year Awards
I delivered lectures
“Jacek is a pleasant hero: he originates from the infographic department of the business press in Poland and he developed into a wonderful designer and consultant. Apart from that he is an excellent ‘guy’ to co-create with: great skills and great character. FD was awarded European Newspaper of the Year. That was fun. ”
He listens to all parties
“Jacek is an excellent art director with whom it is wonderful to work. He listens meticulously to all parties, has a clear line of his own, has a keen eye for the working methods in the newsroom and the results are always good. I won't easily forget the pleasure with which we did two redesigns.”
Tremendously high demand
“Jacek spoke "twice" at Asia Pacific Media Forum in Bali. His second appearance is by tremendously high number of request for him to comeback to APMF delivering enlightenment for the print industry. His knowledge was enlightening some major publishers in Indonesia to transform successfully, as he was also invited to consult them privately.”
Transformation during the crisis
“It was a pleasure working with Jacek. He undertook the difficult task of graphically transforming Gazeta Wyborcza during the media crisis. Changing the layout of the paper editions was an impulse for a deep transformation of its digital platform. The ability to combine offline and online worlds is a unique competence that is necessary in modern media.”
