A few years ago, I decided to live a minimalist lifestyle and travel the world – quite literally the best thing I have ever done. Since giving up everything I own, except for my laptop and what I could fit into a 10 pound backpack, I have experienced lifestyles around the world and have learned to live for the things that matter the most.
As a natural born extrovert with a goal of pushing myself beyond my comfort zone, I have met a lot of unique and interesting people during my travels. These individuals have opened my mind to new ideas and provided me with many life lessons through their personal adventures and stories.
I fell in love with photography at a young age. The ability to capture human senses, anchored to moments of life, in a single image still fascinates me today. Focused on seeing the world for what it is, I use my photography to capture everyday life experiences around the world.
Social: Debating, negotiating, public speaking, history and cultures.
Intellectual: Traveling, entrepreneurship, technology and photography.
Physical: Boxing, freediving, bodybuilding, tennis and motorcycle sports.
“Igor's innovative ideas topped with a strong understanding of the business and development cycle makes Igor a great asset to any team.”
Working in corporate, start-up, and freelance environments for over 15 years, I have a well-rounded career with extensive hands-on UX/UI design and product strategy experience.
I’ve been entrusted to lead product design efforts on high priority projects aimed at increasing the operation and efficiency of SaaS products that drive a $200 billion industry, as well as instrumental software focused on improving the safety and welfare of millions of people around the world.
To me, design is more than just a job. It’s something I truly enjoy and love sharing with others. From mentoring students, to training designers on the use of prototyping tools, and creating UX process templates to help a corporate UX department run more efficiently, I aim to make a true difference and help the community grow.
“As a Senior UX Designer, Igor was very diligent and autonomous working with various Product Managers to deliver UX for merchandising and administrative solutions. Igor also took initiative to pursue mentoring and feedback, and he showed his leadership abilities by teaching others time-saving tricks in key software.”
Integrity is the foundation of all my values and competencies – it entails honesty, a genuine care for others, delivering on my promises, accepting responsibility, self-improvement, and illustrating reliability.
CAPACITY TO LEARN & INNOVATE
I find challenges exciting and love pushing myself to improve. Challenging myself has taught me to appreciate failure. Recognizing that failure is necessary to grow, allows me to push my limits, set new boundaries, and think outside the box without fear.
Motivation fuels my work and my desire to impact the world. I have been passionate about software technology and product design since owning my first computer at eleven years old. My love of digital product design has influenced my career and motivates me to continue growing my knowledge and skills.
KNOWLEDGE & EXPERIENCE
I have over fifteen years of professional experience as a digital product designer, working in corporate, start-up, and freelance environments. My capacity to learn, understand new concepts, innovate, and strategize helps strengthen my knowledge and experiences.
