I am a California-based graphic designer with over 15 years experience in design for print and web. I worked in the advertising industry for over 10 years as well as a freelancer, helping small businesses to create their brands, marketing materials and responsive websites.

I was born and raised in Moscow, Russia, where I received a B.A. in Fine Arts and Design from Stroganov Moscow State University Of Industrial and Applied Arts. I have been painting and drawing regularly.

I moved to California in 1996 after winning a Green Card. Since then I work as a graphic designer. My fine arts background gives me a facility with color and freehand sketching which distinguish the logos, illustrations, websites, or layouts I create. I feel comfortable using both digital and traditional mediums.

I am used to working in a fast-paced deadline-driven environment while paying maximum attention to details. My clients appreciate my quick turn-around and meeting their deadlines.

“Excellent provider. Fast turn around. Great communication. Superb attitude. Highly recommend.”

“Tatyana did a great job. She responded quickly, made requested changes almost immediately and the quality of the work was great. Couldn’t recommend highly enough, this is our second time working with Tatyana and it won’t be the last. She has a very good design aesthetic with great attention to detail, she delivered on time and exceeded our expectations.”

“Very reliable, creative, and pleasant to work with! Hope to work together again.”
