I’m a digital product designer with 11+ years of experience. I work at Swiftly, where I lead a design system, build tools for our team, and improve the design process.
I'm happiest when I find a simple solution to a complex problem.
I believe that in order for a design to be good, it must meet user needs, technological limitations, and business goals. So I learn technologies, tools, and research methods daily. Moreover, good design requires collaboration, so I work closely with researchers, engineers, and product managers — different perspectives can improve a design exponentially.
Knowledge sharing is also important, and I occasionally mentor other designers. They say I'm good at it.
teams and projects
I developed an iOS and Android design system and maintain it. I also create tools to assist my teammates and improve the design process. Here's a story about one of these tools, a color palette generator↗︎.
It was an exciting time of rapid growth for Veeam on its way to world leadership. I collaborated closely with marketing and engineering teams to develop a new corporate website for Veeam. Additionally, I contributed to the design system and created a Behance case↗︎ to show it to the world.
At Cointelegraph, I designed versions for China, South Korea, and Turkey. Being able to work across multiple time zones and learn about the specifics of multilingual interfaces for different cultures was fascinating. A few months later, Cointelegraph became the most visited crypto media in the world. In addition, I designed and launched a new product, Cointelegraph Magazine↗︎
I helped build a design team from scratch and worked on various projects, including launching a loyalty program app for x5 Retail Group ( case study) and redesigning CRM for a pharmaceutical company.
When I joined AGIMA, they had just started developing mobile apps. I led a design team that helped AGIMA become the second-best mobile app development agency in Russia. One noticable project was a mobile app for the second-largest internet provider in Russia, Dom.ru ( case study).
In 2014, I founded a design studio with a small team of designers and engineers. Our focus was mainly on creating mobile apps. It was a fun and challenging time of significant growth and learning. Here is one of my favorite projects made by our team for Visa, Fitbox Virtual Racing ( case study).
My professional career started with a website I built for my sister. To learn more, I began helping others with design and websites. Eventually, I had too many clients to handle, so I started my own studio.
Among the various design tools I know and use, these are my favorites.
