I started my design career in 2008 when I was studying mathematics and physics at school. Design lured me sо much that I left school and later the university. This decision has opened a world of opportunities for my professional development.

At that time, I was dependent on parents will and I didn't have powerful computer to play games. Pentium IV, 256 MBs OEM and old school lamp monitor. I fell in love with Naruto anime series and decided to start learning HTML and CSS.

Then I discovered uCoz — Russian website builder. It helped me to learn how websites are working, front end and Photoshop basics. I dreamed about developer career, when I was building my first Naruto community website.

I dug into Photoshop tutorials, proceeded to exploring different ways to present your work and realised, that design is clearly the same as mathematics, but in a different perspective. You are operating discrete functions, basic math relativity for UI consistency, logarithms for interactions. Different space which doesn't require you use calculator much. Dream job.

I dropped school on my 9th grade (in Ukraine we study 12 years at school) started freelancing and moved from my parents at the age of 16. I got a new middle-class computer and designed interfaces like this one:

At the time of 2013, I was invited to join LUN.ua and dropped first grade at university (I am uncontrolled person) and officially started my product designer career. Before that, I was working on various one-time freelance projects. I didn't have a possibility to sign contracts because of my young age. Ok, I signed my first contract and did incredible job at this company. See case study ▸

Then I was invited to join Petcube — ukrainian startup for pet lovers. We've been working on the gadget that allows you to play with your pet remotely via laser pointer in this device. I designed apps for all mobile platforms and worked on marketing. That's a lot. See case study ▸

After that, I started an agency with my partners called Perfectionist. I was working on a different projects, from apps to business presentations. At the time of 2015, it was extremely popular in my country. When I was working in Perfectionist, we designed beautiful works such as Ukrainian Institute of Fashion History and got a number of big awards. See case study ▸

I got the point that the agency business in Ukraine has its own ceiling, lost a lot of money. I was hired by IVPN — security and privacy company, that developed the most secure public VPN on the market. This head of product design job helped me to discover new ways to compromise your own data and I fell in love with cybersecurity. See case study ▸
