—   Humanity & Technology

About


My name is Chris Jovanov and I’m interested in the intersection between humanity & technology.   I understand this more than most, as I am part technology.




I was born without a left hand and use a bionic arm that I helped design for a range of everyday tasks. This has given me an intimate understanding of the struggles of making technology integrate with life in meaningful ways.

This understanding has served me in my roles as an awarded creative leader at some of the worlds most progressive technology and creative agencies. R/GA New York, AKQA Melbourne, Clemenger BBDO Melbourne and currently Leo Burnett Melbourne.

My practice involves giving creatives a better empathy for technology, and technologists a better empathy for creativity. I know firsthand that great modern work can only happen when we get this delicate balance right.

In my personal work, I’m exploring AI, Deep Learning, AR / VR and Blockchain solutions.

If you are too, we have lots to talk about.
