Why UX?

I moved from Moscow to Amsterdam 3 years ago. Life in a new country with another language, behaviour patterns and practices showed me the importance of good UX. That's how my interest in the UX started.

As a curious and logical person, I love to figure out how things work. I am interested in "Why?" question. I analyze and structure the findings and get everything to solve the problem. Besides, my imaginative and creative mindset helps me to generate ideas and keeps me enthusiastic for a long time. My personality is the main reason I come to UX/UI design.


Current focus

I am looking for a full-time job, where I can implement all the knowledge and skills I have. I aim to make this world better together with other people and contribute to meaningful projects. I work best in the creative, challenging and supportive environment.

I work on UX/UI projects, apply design thinking process and methods to solving user problems. Create personas through user research and data. Create an end-to-end user journey. Transform conceptual ideas into design solutions. 

My background

In 2019 I finished the fulltime immersive UX/UI Bootcamp here in Amsterdam. I developed three UX/UI projects, applied design thinking process and methods to solve user problems. Worked on user research, user stories, wireframes, prototypes for digital products. In 2014 I got a Diploma in Visual Design at a Russian University.

Also, I've worked in a creative field for the last six years. I am recognised as an art photographer —  I have awards, honorable mentions, grant award, publications, and group exhibitions.

I also worked as a portrait photographer and food photographer. I build my own brand identity, developed a marketing strategy and made a structured workflow, that helped me work efficiently.

Besides that, I worked as an art school manager and risk insurance manager. That is where I got my analytical skills and ability to deeply focus on complex problems.

This broad background made me flexible, open-minded and communicative person.

Besides design, I love travelling, psychology, left-handed tools, coffee, oriental cats, mate, calligraphy, slackline, bouldering, and snow. Feel free to get in touch with me!
