I’m Lena. Designer since 2008. Born and raised in Russia since 1988. School years for me were a time of arthouse, walks along abandoned research institutes, online diaries, poems and teenage tragedies.
I started working quite early, still in school, my family did not have much money to properly provide for a teenager. From the age of 14 I did all sorts of side hustles jobs, like delivering newspapers to mailboxes and posting ads.
After graduating from college, I began to work in my specialty while studying at the university. Since 2008, my endless series of jobs has began. By 2018, there were 29 of them, and then I finally thought "What is wrong with me?"
At that moment, I realized that climing the career ladder doesn’t inspire me. My inspiration is only what I produce, this is directly my work. I liked to create, I liked to decide, to interact, but the protest spoke up in me. I didn’t like the corporate culture, I didn’t like the rules of communication between people within the companies, I didn’t like the fact that I change depending on the values of the team, because one way or another you adapt to your habitat.
So,since 2019, I have been a freelancer who, desperately, needs a vacation four times a year. I practice qigong and love meditation practices, and I also try to read more and be less on social media.
Now, I continue to learn more about myself, especially through my own projects and art.
