To whom it may concern.
I am happy to confirm that Herakliusz is one of the best professionals I have had a chance to work
I met him for the first time in 2005, when he worked for Onet.pl - the biggest Polish portal. Herakliusz
taught me how to think about web business, how to creat websites and make them bigger and better
for users. The knowledge he has given me proved to be essential for making GoldenLine what it is
today and I am convinced that without Herakliusz our quick success wouldn't be possible.
A few years later, when GoldeLine was already a big and fast growing business i ask Herakliusz again
for help. He greatly helped us improve creative processess and trained our entire development team.
His influence inspired people to be confident, passionate about our product and much more effective.
Again we were happy to work with him.
I am reccomending Herakliusz with great confidence to any company in need in digital business.

It is my pleasure to write to you on behalf of Herakliusz Lubomirski, one of the most impressive professionals it has been my opportunity to
When we ﬁrst hired Heracliusz to overhaul our Bigmir Internet division, the business was in trouble. Products were archaic, audiences were
declining and we were losing our dominant share of the booming internet ad market.
What Herakliusz achieved was nothing short of miraculous. He completely overhauled our websites, built a strong web development team from
scratch and made important contributions to the overall strategic direction of the company. The passion, skill and professionalism he brought to
our company made an enormous difference.
I would recommend Heracliusz to any company that is serious about building a strong and successful digital business. He is a rare breed who not
only is an outstanding individual performer, but also a great mentor to young professionals and a real team player.

What do we do
We make websites usable and intelligible to customers. We have a
passion for the consumer and believe that everybody should be able to
make the most out of what a web site has to offer. Often, that is not the
case and users get confused, frustrated and click away.
It's a lose-lose situation: the consumer doesn't get what he came for and
the web site has their offering ignored.
Over the last 10 years, we have been helping web sites understand and
fix these problems. Moreover, we have trained teams to work out
usability issues, advised editorial teams on digital content transition
and consulted senior management on both usability and strategic
