I didn't start out as a designer "proper" in professional career terms. After graduating from the Moscow Aviation Institute (State University of Aerospace Technologies) with an M.S. degree in engineering mathematics, I worked as a programmer for 8 years. But even at that early stage I began to perceive what my true calling was. Motivated in those initial years by the desire to make the software I designed neat and convenient to the maximum extent possible with a user-friendly interface, I explored on my own all the graphics editor types in existence at the time, including raster, vector and animation editors, and even ventured into 3D modeling.
In 1994, I was invited to work for CROC – a young but promising Russian IT-company based in Moscow. And from then on I ceased to be just a software maker and embarked on a much more versatile path of creative design. I was lucky to have the opportunity to work alongside utterly qualified experts par excellence both in Moscow and, periodically, in New Jersey. It was then that I came to realize the importance of fine details in developing interface solutions. I began to see the pixel as sort of a virtual small block from a LEGO Duplo set. If anything, there are no insignificant or negligible nitty-gritties in design creation, just as there should be no room for superfluous frills.
The main motivators in life are family and home
WORK IS MY SECOND HOME
EVERYTHING IS ALWAYS FOR THE BEST.
For family reasons I have moved to Saint-Petersburg and am now on the lookout for a new interesting job.
I have worked at CROC for exactly 23 years, during which time I have developed interfaces for dozens of information and analytical systems, designed numerous websites, prepared hundreds of presentations and a whole lot of marketing materials.
Today, CROC is the leading systems integrator in the Russian IT market. And I feel proud and privileged to have been part of its wonderful team of highly skilled and competent professionals, making as a designer my own conscientious contribution to the successful rise and development of the company.
The range of my professional activities expanded enormously, and the amount of deliverables grew accordingly. Those included, inter alia, the Company's public website, interfaces for various information processing systems/web portals in the fields of public healthcare and election administration, numerous presentations, advertising flyers and promotional materials, CROC's corporate style and identity. The Company kept growing and developing rapidly. The number of customers and the scope of tasks increased, involving a plethora of stakeholders in such diverse areas as public governance, banking and education, industrial and commercial enterprises, construction companies, and many others.
As a designer I was involved in many major and professionally challenging projects. My terms of reference included web and interface design tasks, creation of letterheads, certificates, brochures, leaflets, presentation materials and banners, designing showcases, as well as the 3D-modeling of ICT equipment and dedicated facilities (putting into practice the Autodesk 3ds Max techniques I had mastered on an advanced certificate training course).
I count the following among the most important milestone projects I have worked upon for external customers:
It goes without saying that there have been a great many other external projects, both big and small, as well as in-house automated resource and workflow management projects.
Design and implementation of two automated information management systems (IMS) for the FSB Central Outpatient Clinic – Polyclinic IMS and MedAnalytics IMS.
Developing Justice IMS and two software packages – Court Record Keeping and Arbitration Court Record Keeping – as part of the effort to upgrade the infrastructure network for courts of general jurisdiction and the Court Support Department under the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation. Establishing integrated data portals for justices of the peace in Moscow, Tula, Tatarstan, the Stavropol region, the Chechen Republic.
Participating in the project to develop the State Automated Information System "Elections", creating Internet resources for the Moscow Eleсtion Committee.

Content Oriented Web
Make great presentations, longreads, and landing pages, as well as photo stories, blogs, lookbooks, and all other kinds of content oriented projects.
В качестве дизайнера я принимал участие во многих крупных и интересных проектах. В мои обязанности входили задачи по Веб-дизайну, дизайну интерфейсов, изготовлению фирменных бланков, сертификатов, брошюр, листовок, презентаций, баннеров, оформлению стендов, а также 3D-моделирование компьютерного и телекоммуникационного оборудования и залов для его размещения (3D Studio я все-таки освоил, пройдя курсы обучения и получив сертификат).
К наиболее значимым и крупным внешним проектам я отношу:
создание автоматизированных информационных систем для Центральной поликлиники ФСБ: АИС "Поликлиника" и АИС "Меданалитика"
в рамках модернизации сетевой инфраструктуры судов общей юрисдикции и Судебного департамента при Верховном Суде РФ были разработаны АИС "Правосудие" и программные комплексы "Судебное делопроизводство" и "Судебно-арбитражное делопроизводство". Созданы единые информационные порталы для мировых судей Москвы, Тулы, Татарстана, Ставрополья, Чечни, Крыма и Севастополя.
участие в проекте ГАС "Выборы", создание интернет-ресурсов для Московской городской избирательной комиссии.
Ну и конечно же, было множество других больших и малых внешних проектов и проектов по внутренней автоматизации и управлению ресурсами и процессами.
If you have any questions to ask, suggestions, remarks or requests to make, don't hesitate to write or call. I am always happy to make new acquaintances and communicate with interesting and like-minded people.
