I am Rumiana. Friends call me Rumi. Yes, just like the ancient poet. The name is the only thing that connects us though, and perhaps the fact that I used to write poetry as a teenager. Back then I also dreamt of becoming an artist, perhaps an illustrator, while attending an art college. Then one day… as we were creating posters, by painting every detail with acrylics on paper, and precisely drawing letters by hand, a young Japanese teacher introduced me for the first time to the wonders of the early graphics software. Soon after, I was fully immersed in the virtual world of vectors and pixels. Long story short, I decided to dedicate myself to another form of art – digital design, and it became my profession. Ever since, I have been helping companies design their products, brands and online presence.
Most of my work is at the overlap of applied aesthetics, psychology and technology. My focus is on designing digital user interfaces, but occasionally I also work on branding, marketing related, or various other design projects.
I love optimizing both processes and designs. Discovering how to make complex interfaces easy to understand, logical and intuitive, as well as beautiful and pleasant to interact with. I love looking for that perfect balance in a design strategy, that delivers delightful user-centered experience, while reaching business goals. I strive for excellence, and don’t rest until a design makes sense, looks good, serves a purpose, and makes a difference.
When not engaged with a design project, I enjoy spending time on some fun hobbies. You would see me taking photos of blooming trees and whatnot, or wearing a mask and funny glasses while forging silver into rings and things, or head down with fine tweezers and a magnifying glass, working on my next 1:12 scale miniature.
