ALL THINGS DESIGN, MARKETING & ART

I help businesses, entrepreneurs and makers bring their ideas to life. Together we expand the vision, create plans, and make it all happen.

About

I'm a designer, but he'd be just as happy to be labeled an artist, a builder, a maker. I specialize in logo, brand and identity; web and mobile applications; user interface, experience and interaction; website design & development; print, stationery, packaging; art direction. I also have my own self-initiated projects from time to time.

Overview

My practice focuses on design systems that improve relationships between the user and a product to each other’s advantages. My love for technology and tools has driven me to build remarkable and powerful products, that people are excited to use. While exercising a good eye for aesthetics, I grasps and distills complex issues and translates them into clean, focused, understandable solutions.

I'm is equally comfortable discussing color theory, user psychology, or the semantic implications of the DIV tag. I'm is excited about the endless potential of the web, apps and gadgets.

My portfolio isn’t a series of beautiful, generic templates — it’s a collection of stories that I can discuss with enthusiasm, and regret… because I'm is always getting better at what I do and never satisfied with “good enough.”

story

I was born in the small Siberian town Zheleznogorsk on a sunny spring day in 1985. There, I mastered graphic design and fine arts for 6 years at the College of Arts and Design and in 2005 earned a bachelor degree in business administration, management and operations at the RIAT. In 2006 I relocated to United States, where I started to build my design career.

I had an opportunity to work with many great companies and master my skills in print, digital publishing, typography, photography, video, web design, web development, user experience, and interaction design.

In '07 – '08 I worked as a freelance photographer and designer for Standerd and Wake magazines. In 2008 I established Dejavu Design, Inc. In '08 – '09 I joined non-profit Academy Publishing where I designed sponsorship ads for school newsletters around the country.

In 2009 I joined a startup hip-hop magazine G.O.A.T. where I designed, illustrated and photographed.

In 2012, I teamed-up with creative design firm, Ruxly. I was responsible for branding, website design and development, mobile applications design, user experience and interaction design. Together we worked with some amazing clients such as Starwood, Columbia University, Bacardi, Windsor, Harbor House, 23&me. We also founded a cancer social-network & resource-hub — Know Cancer later that year.

Since mid-2012, I played an active role in Downtown Credo as a Creative and Marketing Director.

In 2013, I joined a startup. SightPlan is an enterprise software for building and managing apartment communities. I handled branding, mobile and web applications design, iconography, illustrations and marketing.

With an approachable outgoing personality and good communication skills, I established a lot of great relationships around the globe, working with individuals from United States, Russia, Sweden, Germany, Argentina, Australia, Bahamas and China.

Away from desk

Away from the desk I'm an avid mountain biker, traveller and great outdoors advocate. I like to get my hands dirty when it comes to repairs, maintenance and building of things that I use on daily basis, skills that tend to disappear in the service oriented world nowadays. Occasionally I write about some of that in my journal
