12 years of experience in graphic design
Art Director Dovidenko Design Studio (Yekaterinburg, Russia) stasdodesign.com
Everyday I am thankful for how fortunate I have been. I am one of the lucky few; doing what I love. To some degree, it’s in my blood- I grew up in the business of drawing. My mom bring me to an art school. Since then i draw whole my life. It become a passion. With the constant introduction of new technologies and the daily evolution of the business; I can’t imagine a more exciting time to be doing what I do. There seems to be no end to the possibilities and variables. I grew up with a strong blue collar work ethic. There simply is no replacement for hard work and doing your research. You may out talent me from time to time, but you will be hard-pressed to out work me.
I am an art director with the analytical mind of a strategist and the processes of an account director. I believe my job isn’t my title, it is the responsibilities I have to my clients and my team. I have had the honor of working with and learning from some of the smartest people in the business. Unlike many art directors, I remain very hands on; I prefer to lead by example and instruction. I am very experienced in all elements of marketing from traditional advertising to store design to interactive and emerging technologies.
