Design Line Online Course
30 november 2018

In November, I took part in the Design Line online course. During a week, every day I was watching live webinars about UI/UX, future of design, new trends, communications, etc. The speakers were owners and designers of Russian and foreign design studios.

You know, the human brain works, as follows: it stops working when it thinks it knows everything about something (e.g. design). It is significant to understand that IT (and UI/UX design is a part of IT) produces new information, daily. That being said, we have to learn something new, again and again. We need to become a student, again. Design Line helped me turn out into a student. I learnt some helpful tips, not only from speakers, but from participants, as well. Moreover, we got some plans on collaborations :)

It is great that Design Line is not about catching the wind in a net. Straight questions — straight answers, that is it. Happy to start using the knowledge I got in my work!

P.S. The last name in the certificate is different from the last name on the site due to family circumstances :)

Button color name radio buttons. Instead of “red” it says “tomato”. Tomato color. Interesting :)

Wow! WhatTheFont App is alive!
5 november 2017

My dreams come true :)

I used the WhatTheFont service for a long time to identify the fonts. It’s easy: just make a screenshot, upload it and see the fonts.

But sometimes you have to edit the screenshot (adjust the lightness, contrast etc). Here in the app you can simply take a photo and that’s it!

My tests below :)

Let’s try something more complicated. I do not know this font for sure.

This is Sheridan Gothic SG. Refugio looks similar, but it is not the correct font.

Love it!


Underground lines icons in Lisbon
18 august 2017

4 lines. 4 icons. 4 symbols.

Blue – gull.
Yellow – sunflower.
Green – caravelle.
Red – wind rose.

They have great look and feel. When you go down to the underground you hear the bell ringing (like on the ship) and you feel like a real captain from the Middle Ages. Unforgettable feeling!



Nice underground entrance. Lisbon, Portugal

Jamoneria icon, Barcelona
12 august 2017

This icon stands for “jamoneria” — a place where you can try jamon.
The icon itself is a jamonera — a special tool for slicing jamon.
