I am Moscow(RU) based digital designer and advisor designing user interfaces and human-computer interaction, product design, ux design and all other experience since 2008. I have been featured in asian books(5), magazines(>20), various awards(56) and exhibition(1). Today I work as advisor or designer and try to live.
You can find some of my daily works and some thought on design and life in general. I’ve also tried to collect my art here, some of which you can purchase for personal use.
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.
