Who is V?

I am a vibrant visual designer currently based in Helsinki. I mostly do illustrations, marketing material, booklet/ book layouts and occasionally UI layouts for clients.

The software I use:

  • Adobe Illustrator (vector graphics)

  • Indesign (editorial)

  • Procreate and Photoshop (raster graphics)

  • Figma and Adobe XD (UI/UX prototyping)

 

I posses a basic knowledge of HTML and CSS and have done a fair share of website management/ optimisation on the Shopify platform using .liquid language. 

I love prints, vibrant illustrations, books and decorative design. Printing graphics is wizardry that will always excite my heart while thoughtful UI and layouts will please my eye.

I am always open to new collaborations, so feel free to contact me to work on a project together. ;) 

I was born and raised in Belarus, but I wanted to study abroad. At the age of 18, I moved to Vilnius for 3 years, where I got my BA in Mass Communications from European Humanities University. During my studies, I explored Greece through Erasmus Mundus exchange program for about 8 months in 2010.

 

Between 2013 and 2015, I lived in Belarus - the period of exploration and freelance jobs. I worked in the publishing house Lohvinau and printing shop Manufacture to learn about the arts scene in my country. Occasionally, I posed for graphic students in the National Art Academy. ​We became friends. :)

In 2015, I received a scholarship as a part of the European Scholarship Scheme for Young Belarusians and moved to Tampere, Finland, to pursue my Master's Degree in Media Management from the University of Tampere. I took part in several projects in Demola that covered branding, user experience and furniture design. I also did an internship at the printing workshop in Himmelblau, the place of art and wizardry.

Since 2018, I have lived in Helsinki, where I work at the marketing agency Ink Tank Media. Since 2019 I am studying design in Aalto to deepen my knowledge in the field and polish my design mind and skills. Occasionally, I do projects for Very Finnish Problems and freelancing.
