Discover the interview of Bezdenezhnykh Evgeny Igorevich in Moscow, Russia.
How did you become designer ?
For that choice I am obliged to several circumstances. Since the middle school, I was fascinated by visual effects, and that’s why I have decided to study compositing and motion design. After the school, I worked as a freelancer, shooting videos, making photos, and design. However, I’ve never studied any of these things and work intuitively: I didn’t realised what exactly I was doing and how is it called. My Bachelor degree is related to mathematics and computer science, but after the graduation I have decided to completely change the vector of study and entered the Master program at the HSE Art and Design School. Only at that moment I have understood the essence of the profession and the role of a designer in business.
How would you define your vision of design, your style ?
When I am working on a project, I am trying to «dive» into it. In the postmodern era and advanced technical equipment, we have an unlimited number of tools and techniques which we can use in a design project. Only a fundamental and clear understanding of the task, makes it possible to functionally and elegantly solve the problem. It is also very important to be open to new things, to draw inspiration from history and surrounding reality. Sometimes answers come from the most unexpected sources.
For the future, what are your professional projects ?
My immediate plans are the structuring of the knowledge gained at the university and other courses and determining of my place in the industry. Also, over the last couple of months, with colleagues, we have been working with our design and development studio, attracting clients and recruiting employees. Studio development is one of the main priorities for the near future.
What do you like the most in your job ?
I like when you can feel and even touch the result of your own work, you are not just a part of a large corporate organism. At the same time, I believe, many people from our sphere have an ambition to make the world a better place and leave a trace in the history and material culture of the humanity. Design also seems to me a strange symbiosis of vanity and exhibitionism, laid somewhere deep in the soul, stirs the desire to demonstrate their work to a large number of people and share with them your own vision of the world.
