I am a hardworking and talented graphic designer with a creative bent of mind and a passion for understanding art as a powerful form of expression. I offer bespoke design solutions that match the needs and requirements of each and every project perfectly. I am a graphic designer who has 14 years of experience in fine art and 4 years in graphic design and has successfully transformed several ideas and concepts into reality using my expertise in digital media.
Service Description
An expert in a number of graphic design software, I possess a deep understanding of the usage of the technology that I work with such as:

• Photoshop
• Illustrator
• InDesign
• Dreamweaver
• Flash

While studying Management at The Ufa State Institute of Service (Russia), I realized that art was my true calling. Having drawn, painted, and created art for as long as I could remember, I decided to switch the area of study to graphic design. I attended The Ufa Art School for four years (1994-1998) where I took a number of different art courses including drawing, painting, easel painting, sculpture, history of Arts, decorative applied arts, and outside arts. Then I graduated with a Diploma in Fine Art.

A few years down the line, I signed up for the Associate of Applied Business in Graphic Design (Lakeland Community College (2006-2008), Kirtland, Ohio), where I graduated in 2008 with honors. During the course of my study, I also won several awards in graphic design and photography.

A recent graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh’s Bachelor of Science in Graphic Design program, I got a GPA of 4.0. Renowned for my world-class quality work and the ability to manage a project from conception to completion, as a freelance graphic designer I can be consulted for her expertise in:

• Corporate/brand identity and logo creation
• Designing stationery
• Image editing
• Packaging
• Book covers/Illustrations
• Presentations
• Printed promotional materials (brochures, booklets, posters, flyers, promo cards, billboards, marketing reports, magazines, catalogs, etc.)
• Website designing (informational type)
• Creating simple web animation

As an artist, though fantasy, children, animals, pets, and people are the most popular themes seen in my works. The art portfolio also demonstrates the different styles and themes.
