About moi

A little bit about me. I’m a laid back (insert buzzword) designer, artist and father who’s addicted to almost every new gadget and dope interfaces out there. Not that young anymore, but wiser than before! I wrote some more words about myself below. The only place on this site to get to know me better.

Born in Ukraine, moved to Russia and raised in good ol’ Germany. Düsseldorf to be precise. The best city in Germany by the way.
I started out in the gaming industry designing websites, icons, coming up with character designs, many many many textures and lots of interface designs.
After that, I worked for different advertising agencies designing various mobile apps, icons and websites as well as creating the cover art design for the Nero 11 Package (Regular and Platinum Editions) and the consumer website for Humax.

Gursky Design

Then, in 2010 I decided to do my own thing and started working as a freelancer by founding Gursky Design. So in the daytime I worked for an advertising agency and in the evenings I was trying to juggle my freelancing projects. It took me a bit to realize that in order to rock the freelancing thing, I’d need to do it fulltime. The perfect moment came when my son was born. I quit the job and the “no-life-besides-agency” work mantra.

These days I’m happy and thankful to work for various (inter)national clients ranging from start-ups, medium sized companies and to huge corporations.

I work because I love this shit

My drive and inspiration is to set the benchmark on unique and beautiful design that heavily focuses on user experience and also has the best possible functionality.
I’m all about whipping up sweet interfaces, icons, apps, websites and illustrations. My stuff is always pixel-perfect, thought-through and crafted with great passion. I am good at what I do and that is because I just fucking love what I’m doing.

That being said, I’m especially awesome in everything mobile related and when it comes to the Apple’s iOS, Google’s Android or Microsoft’s Windows platforms.

Need some proof? Check out Threepointer for example. It was an amazing and probably the best Windows Phone client for Dribbble out there for any mobile platform at that time but unfortunately, it’s discontinued at the moment.

Just gursky.

Evolution in my journey is inevitable. As my creative path expands beyond design, I’ve decided to shed the “Design” from “Gursky Design” and embrace a more encompassing identity: just “gursky.”
Today, my scope reaches far beyond mere design; I advise, guide, and consult with companies, conjure innovative concepts, and share my knowledge and expertise whenever it’s needed. This shift encapsulates the multifaceted nature of my contributions, capturing the breadth of what I, “gursky.” truly stand for.
