I initiated my career in 2010 by independently studying design. Over the years, I gained experience in various products, startups, and teams. Currently, I contribute to international projects at Yandex and live in Belgrade.
I value balance in my work. I think about people, but I do not forget about business goals. I improve UX and appreciate beauty. Growing metrics and remembering that numbers don't always reflect what a product is for people.
I think of the product as my personal project. It helps to look at the product whole and strategically from the owner's position.
Since I have different backgrounds, I can work in different ways, adjusting to the team and the overall pace.
In a mature product, I will analyze and get acquainted with the history of research and tests. I will suggest ideas for the product, make the design, prepare it for development, and help product managers and developers implement improvements. I will analyze the results later.
In a startup, I can help formulate the final vision of the product. I will assemble an MVP model, break the design into releases, and form the foundation for the future design system.
The primary tool I currently work with is Figma, before that, I used Sketch and earlier Photoshop. I prototype interfaces in Figma and Protopie, occasionally AE. Sometimes I create simple 3D illustrations in Cinema 4D. If necessary, I will make a design for Redimag, Webflow, Unbounce, or another similar tool and assemble layouts in it. I can create simple layouts using pure HTML/CSS. From time to time, as a hobby, I study JS and Python.
