About me

I was born in St.Petersburg, Russia in 1987. I finished my education at St.Petersburg State University of Engineering and Economics and right now I’m studying Interface Design at the University of Applied Science in Potsdam, Germany.

I have been working as a designer for many years. And 6 years ago like every young and ambitious designer I founded my own small design agency in Russia, where I was working as designer and director. We did about 12-15 projects probably, but all this organising stuff prevent my professional progress as designer, and I decided to start freelancing as designer.

Until today I work as freelance designer and also study Interface Design at the University.


What are my work fields?

In spite of my main interest in design, I had experience as programmer and producer as well, so I understand the whole way of creating an interface.
In my portfolio you will see a lot of web-oriented projects, however I like to work with mobile interfaces and sometimes experimental things, like multitouch tables as well.
But my main interest remain in interface design, generally without the rich graphics, but which still be sexy and very user friendly.


What Is my lifestyle?

The last some months I did not have a lot of free time, so I worked. I work at home, where I have everything what I need, but also, I have my private work place in the university, if I feel, that I need to be more organized and focused today.
In my free of work time, I work out at a gym pretty seriously, that helps me to take away any stresses and just to be satisfied with myself.
I also like traveling and movies, like all people, I guess.
