I have been designing products for the last 7 years, worked with the Ya Browser team, and participated in the redesign of Ya.Music, in 2019 we launched Practicum, and in 2021 Masterskaya Practicum. In Masterskaya, as a design director, I participated in >56 projects for Yandex Auto, Yandex Market, Yandex Cloud, Skolkovo, and other companies. For the last year and a half, I have been an art director at international IA startups of Yandex.

             Q: What gives you inspiration? 
             A: Apart from work, I spend my time teaching aspiring designers and leading webinars and workshops. Work with students gives me motivation to stay up to date with trends in design, learn something new and seek some gaps in my knowledge. I also love drawing and keep some sort of graphic journal.

             A:  I am focused now on art direction and design management. I am building processes and manading designers within my team. I sincerely believe that good design makes life better. You should learn how to balance form and function, and the world will become a better place!
