"Work is not work if you love what you do."

Moving to Kansas City from Moscow, Russia, in 2006 was not an easy step, but it was an event that changed my life. During my four years at the Kansas City Art Institute I explored my strengths and weaknesses—but more importantly—was taught how to learn. My experiments in design sparked my love for print media and its tactile quality. I am inspired by meaningful design with a strong purpose. As a permanent resident I am planning to stay in the United States and pursue an exciting career in graphic design.
