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.
