What colleagues and clients say about me

In the Alfa-Bank projects Nikita has proved to be a highly-qualified specialist. He activly immerses into the project’s  business-task in order to project the user interface, taking into consideration all the specifications of the problem. All the assignments were delivered at high quality and in accordance with deadlines.  He is pleasant in terms of communication, assimilates within the team quickly and reacts adequately to the feedbacks.

I like the level, the main screen turned out to be very stylish, regarding the edits - I liked that he asked questions, not just did it on his own, or tried to figure something out. He is responsive - which is good, because many designers are stuck in their shells and do not eager to get out of it.

Nikita is a great guy, independent, experienced and hardy as hell. As a founder, I have never had to solve problems created by Nikita or in his projects. Everything always met the deadlines and was predictable.

Nikita, congratulations on a job well done in this course. Over the past 3 weeks, you’ve impressed us with your attention detail and flexibility of thinking. You brought curiosity and professionalism to the in-class activities and out of class assignments. You were a stellar teammate to Ivan and did strong work refining the prototype based on multiple rounds of user testing. We also noticed your ability to create a logo, initial branding, and presentation design, creating a look that was refined, all on a tight deadline.

On the photo above, there is Nikita. Nikita that got an opportunity from us to start a new life. He is an amazing guy and I always bring him to example. Such a persistence and the ability to think outside the box will always make him succeed. We’ve had loads of test-assignments and Nikita did them in the best possible way. Make sure to check out how to present projects. Not only does it apply to competitions, but also to the cv-application responses. The best results can only be achieved through the personal approach and strong persistence.

If you are an interaction designer, then welcome to the workshop about prototyping. You will learn about the most up-to-date prototyping tools, which will bring life to your interface layouts. Bring your laptop with you and enjoy!
