Good things designed with care and liking

Taking a look at my Pinterest account is probably the best way to figure out my taste in visuals. Aside from design work, also devote myself to the art project Northiness, make music as Gust Recorder and run a nostalgic blog dform-dstrkt.

My name is Ilya Sizov. I design websites, digital interfaces, visual identities and communication campaigns that appeal to people. I like thoughtful things that make sense and hit the nerve. For the last decade, I’ve been working with creative agencies as well as helped product teams to deliver more sense and value to their projects.
