I have 12+ years of experience as a digital product designer. Currently, I'm with Swiftly, focusing on a design system, developing new features and UX enhancements, creating tools for the team, and refining 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 spearheaded the development of a multi-platform design system, collaborated closely with engineers to build a UI library, and continue to maintain it. I also create tools to assist my teammates and improve the design process.
In addition to it, I work closely with researchers and product managers to enhance user experience and develop new features for our products.
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.
