I Design & Prototype digital products.

Hi, I’m Victoria! I'm a UX / UI designer. I invite you to share my passion for clean and functional design.

In 1999, at the age of fourteen, I discovered Photoshop and Dreamweaver during an internship at an agency and entered the emerging world of digital design.

After an appretinceship at a media design company, I got a degree in information design and worked in several digital agencies. In my projects I predominantly created interactive products like websites, services and apps for various devices across several industries. I learned to lead teams and to ingest new ideas. Alongside my core job as UI/UX designer, I conducted workshops and directed photo shoots. For me creating an innovative solution is always a thing of combining available tools and finding a new angle.

In 2018 I have decided to work freelance. Since then I have been collaborating with many inspiring and creative people. Our digital solutions were functional and beautiful. Products that truly fulfill users’ needs in the most simple way. Products that bring joy and show a human touch.

Btw.: Vica is how people call me in Russian. The French surname was a wedding gift. My French language skills are down to a few words :-D
