Results — Driven.

Besides Creative, Inventive or Enterprising, my clients call me Resourceful. One thing is to have a great idea, and it’s much more rare to be the kind of a person who finds creative ways to execute it.

―  Background

56.8389° N, 60.6057° E

Remember the past, look into the future. A life full of trials has made me who I am. To appreciate a loaf of bread, you need to experience hunger; to appreciate a warm climate, you need to live in the cold; to value wealth you need to experience poverty… I was born in Yekaterinburg, 5,707 miles away from my current location. I studied Industrial design at USUAA (Ural State Academy of Architecture and Arts) and successfully graduated from Art School of N. A. Rimskogo-Korsakova with Gold Medal Award. During my post graduation I worked with many international brands such as Yellow Pages, Miele, Boffi, Giorgetti, and gained priceless architecture and design experiences. Later I joined a few creative agencies in Kiev, Ukraine, where I spearheaded design and marketing teams and led projects for Kievstar, Obolon, MilaVitsa, Western Union, Reynaers Aluminium and many other brands. Eventually I was able to build and run my own creative agency which is called Metamorfoza. After 2 years of success and design recognition on the national level I was forced to leave Ukraine and move to the USA with my family. Since 2014 I’ve been living and working in Utah as a multidisciplinary designer and creative director, who integrates design, marketing, and technology for local businesses in the same way and manner as I do it for national brands such as The Hershey Company, Wallmart.com, Maceys, Williams-Sonoma.

―  My Approach

Creativite Partner

Let’s be honest – Great design doesn’t always solve problems, but who does? The right type of a design leader, a proactive innovator with a holistic vision and broadly skilled who can manage all of the different phases of design in a smart entrepreneurial way.

Thinking wisely

I practice functional design and do not create conceptual art. Creativity for the case of Creativity? This is not how I work, I specialize in projects that are capable of benefitting or solving clients’ problems.
