Hello, I’m Sasha, a Ukrainan multidisciplinary designer based in Portugal.

I visualise concepts and ideas, create visual languages for projects and individuals.
In CV language, I do art direction, identity, graphic and web design.

Context is my middle name: holistic approach to design, research, analysis, communication are my main tools. Figma, Creative Suite, Cinema 4D, notebook, pencil and Muji pens are usually involved as well (sometimes also ink).

I first started practicing photography and managing projects during my first year of university, while studying journalism and communication. Worked as an editor, photographer, contemporary art gallery project manager, writer. Then after a break that involved furniture design and some more writing I started doing illustration, learning design and 3D. Having deep interest in the visual part of communication eventually led me into identity design.

For 8 years I worked as an independent creative unit, doing identities, interactive projects, illustration. During that time I’ve worked with musicians, cultural projects and institutions, tech companies and editorials.

In 2021 curiosity and keenness to work in a team on a larger project brought me to a blockchain project as a visual/brand designer. Lately I’ve been working as an independent identity designer for web3 projects helping them move towards the mass adoption.

Apart from design I shoot on film, photography section is coming relatively soon. I’m also currently on a sloppy path of learning
type design
and getting back to a postponed-for-too-long one of
doing sculpture
. Sometimes open to the wildest (and moderately wild) collaborations, drop me a line.
