Matching my profession with passion.

The design unites all the things I'm interested in. It allowed me to become a specialist in things I like. I am a designer.

About Me

  1. Experience

    Started career with occasional clients, learned to work on projects in an ad agency, designed a new product in my hometown's company, moved to work at the state's search giant, art-directed several startups.

  2. Skill Set

    After working in companies of different types and sizes, I've got multidisciplinary experience™ of ma­king design, research, art-direction, manage­ment, and launching products for millions of people.

  3. Approach

    Years in the industry helped me to figure out some important principles of design: empathy, transpa­rency, honesty. I feel happier doing things for people first, and businesses feel happy when it gives back.
