Q. What do you think about your role in application developing?
A. My responsibility is design. In app developing all comes from this point. From flyers and banners to interaction design. Graphic part is completely engaged me. Icons, colors, different design staff and all such kind of «garbage» — it's up to me. In design of new screens and application behavior we work all together with programmers and other team members. It’s faster to do something that will satisfy most of us, in terms of design, and the point of view of programming.
Q. What inspired you to create a logo?
A. Well, actually the creation of the logo isn’t a magical process that brings inexplicably to designers head an inspiration and a picture of a new logo. Initially there were only a few directions that need to be work on. I came up with a bunch of sketches, and then Ivan and Alexey chose the most successful.
After selecting, all started over again. Even sometimes we come to other decision and start all over again. Well, it just sounds so complicated; in fact, this is usual process of creating something. At last everyone liked the idea with animals, which can oriented in conditions of low visibility, or nocturnal animals. After many adaptations of owls, we came to the owl with big eyes like car headlights.
Q. What is the complexity of design for the small smartphones screen?
