Natalia (Pirozhkova) Fomicheva
UX/UI designer
I'm a UX/UI designer who firmly believes that design is first and foremost about solving problems. Thanks to my user-centered approach and e-business background, I am able to design elegant solutions that suit their target audience. My experience designing for various screens (desktop, tablet, and mobile) is also an asset, which helps me understand the features and limits of each platform. A team player, I value work environments where honest feedback and diversity are encouraged. I'm living and working out of Saint Petersburg (Russia), and am open to freelance and/or relocation.

About myself
A UX / UI designer with experience in e-commerce, and degrees in civil engineering and economics. My education and 9 years of experience in the field of economics allow me to better understand the financial tasks and the technical parts of creating products. My love of drawing paired with my sense of user-oriented design made me look at how products are used and what users most appreciate in interfaces. I like to find improvements to create the best user interface in both physical and digital spaces.
