Offline meetups, online buzz, creative hunting, revealing new names.
Saint Petersburg, Russia
I have started Designcollector in April 2003 as a first Russian blog dedicated to web design sites. Little did I know that it would eventually grow into a permanent place to get inspiration and catch up the recent trends in graphic design, motion-graphics, flash, web design, photography, fashion and music.
For the last several years Designcollector have been leaded by several contribution authors who eventually made posts on a site and improved the value of a resource.
For the years DC has been supporting the cutting edge of design scene: ADCR, Electrolux Labs, Philips Design, FITC, OFFF, TOCA ME, MadinSpain(MAD) Partnership with the FWA, Design You Trust, Behance Network, Lookbook, Digital Abstracts, IdNWorld, NewWebPick, Fubiz, Design East, Bigmag, Deforum, Ventilate, Dazed, Satellite Voices and etc.
The wide network of partners and creative connections let DC to collaborate with various media, curate and reveal local and worldwide talents. At this point I have contributed (articles/interviews/activities) to Digital Creative Arts Russia, Xyligan (Hooligan), Smashing Magazine, and most recently with Dazed&Confused (Satellite Voices)
Long-lasting partnership with OFFF post-digital culture festival converted me from Media Supporter (2008 - 2010) to Speaker (Russian Creativity Panel) expected in June 2011.
Having all Russian talents around inspired me to create the unique books and references: "Russian Illustration WOW!" in two volumes. Published and delivered by Blurb.com
