About

What makes me a good asset?

I’m Ilya, a seasoned UX/UI designer with a diverse skill set encompassing user research, concept development, and UI design and prototyping. With a background in multimedia design, digital marketing, and web development, I bring a wealth of experience to the table.

I can help you develop and design your next digital solution, tailored to your user’s needs and business objectives. Let’s collaborate to bring your next project to life.

Journey to UX design

My journey to UX design began with website design and development. Driven by a passion for intuitive interfaces and aesthetics, I pursued a bachelor’s degree in Digital Concept Development. Over the years, I’ve evolved from crafting web designs to conceptualizing complex digital solutions and creating delightful experiences. In my recent role, I created designs and interfaces for digital products and other e-commerce solutions.

Why UX?

UX design revolves around crafting solutions that serve the needs and preferences of the target audience, ensuring usability, aesthetic appeal, and lasting impact. I firmly believe UX is a critical aspect of any digital product’s success.

Process

My workflow aligns with the Double Diamond framework, created by the British Design Council. From exploring the problem and empathising with users to creating and refining developed solutions, this process is divided into four distinct phases: discover, define, develop and deliver.

Continuous learning

I actively participate in design related online events, such as ADPList BeMore, Figma Product days and hackathons, to stay updated with industry trends and connect with other professionals outside of the UX design field. Additionally I contribute to the design community with personal projects published on the Figma community and share my insights in my blog.

Outside of the design

When I am not all over design, you’ll likely find me exploring contemporary art museums, enjoying movies, or cycling.
