/ Online classes "Introduction to design", "Collaboration" and "Art direction"
"Collaboration" class
With Natasha Faibisovich
Description:
Design department Year 4 course aiming to provide students with hands-on experience of multidisciplinary work.

As part of it, students specializing in Graphic Design, Digital Design and Illustration must team up and, based on a randomly selected pair of words, create and develop their own brand along with its products. We designed that course to stand out for being based on tutoring rather than lectures or workshops.
"Art direction" class
Description:
Design department Year 4 course aiming to provide students with hands-on experience of leading a project as a client-facing art director working on a real client brief.

Throughout the duration of the course each student gets to act as the art director: they lead their team, complete the work demanded by the client, present it to the client during the next class, discuss it and get feedback.

All the feedback regarding the design comes directly from the client while I as tutor only makes suggestions about the client interaction and team dynamics.

Public transport maps guideline
With Maria Barulina (editor)
Task:
Develop and design a set of guidelines to work with public transport route maps.

Outcome:

In Part I of the album I provided a detailed overview of the structure and organization of the basic map, properties of each layer, object and font, as well as rules for applying and configuring them.

Part II offers a step by step explanation (down to specific key combinations) of how to design public transport maps: how to chart the route lines, adjust the basic map to accommodate them, mark stops and lines themselves, highlight termini, compile legends, including ones outside the border of the map. It also considers in detail properties of each map layer.


Layout templates for Design Typology 2.0
Task:
Prepare a set of templates for the Moscow Metro's signs Design Typology 2.0.

Outcome:
I was given a task to prepare a new layout templates based on the work of previous executor, but in my opinion that work was poorly done so instead I designed a new layout framework and logic to replace the existing ad hoc approach. Based on the framework I created 46 new templates that was fixed in the new typology.
2018 World Cup visitor's maps
Task:
Create pedestrian approach maps for 2018 FIFA World Cup stadia and Fanfest, as well as navigation maps for airports, railways stations and other transport hubs, to be printed in official FIFA guidebooks as well as used on an individual basis.


Outcome:
The dimensions of the guidebook and the large amount of information required to be shown meant that there was not much space left for the maps, which made the task more complex but ultimately led me to create more streamlined and informative design.
Design Typology 2.6
With Sergey Litvinovich (manager), Anna Struk (technical designer) Maria Barulina (editor) and Vladislav Gorbov (editor)
Task:
Develop the Design Typology 2.6 and renew layout templates for the Moscow Metro.

Outcome:
At this point, Design Typology 2.0 had been in use for about a year, so we researched accumulated user experience, including all problems, and used them as a departure to make the new layout rules and templates more flexible so that they could accommodate the highest number of possible unique wayfinding cases. That way we could try to improve both the experience of passengers and layout designers at the same time.

As part of our work on Design Typology 2.6 we updated the layout framework, recorded about 20 crucial cases which were not taken care of in the previous version, and created around 100 new templates.

We also expanded our work on the new type of map based signs which in future could become the foundation for a new, more efficient navigation framework for the Moscow Metro.


Moscow Metro stations wayfinding
With Sergey Litvinovich (manager), Maria Barulina (editor) and Varvara Melnichenko (info planner)
Task:
Develop wayfinding and typeset signs for the following Moscow Metro stations:

Tretyakovskya (Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya line) / Tretyakovskaya (Kalininskaya line) / Polezhaevskaya/ Savyolovskaya (Bolshaya Koltsevaya line) / Rasskazovka/ Michurenskiy Prospekt/ Kommunarka/ Prokshino/ Filatov Lug/ Kosino/ Ulitsa Dmitrievskogo/ Lefortovo/ Aviamotornaya/ Nizhegorodskaya/ Stakhanovskaya/ Okskaya/ Yugo-Vostochnaya / Belomorskaya


Outsome:
We split work related to each station into 3 basic phases, to make it more efficient:

1. Surveying and analysing the station's working documentation, determining crucial navigation nodes, identifying mistakes in the preliminary layout of navigation elements, making corrections and preliminary planning of information requirements for each sign.

2. Making the site visit to finalise decisions which came along during the first phase and could not be settled remotely.

3.Producing the layouts for each navigation element and preparing them for production; producing the guides for placing the navigation elements in the station.

With Vitaliy Kurduk (engineer)
Task:
Develop a production-ready carbon-base electric scooter

Outcome:
Formal design decisions aside, Shard’s distinctive feature which was our main goal during development process is the swivel-folding mechanism which enables steering when open and blocks the front wheel when closed.

Dots
Task:
Develop a product which would improve the experience of London Underground customers with any type of sight loss.

Outcome:
As a result I developed DOTS (Dynamic Orientation Tag System) which is a concept of complex system of hardware and software which enables people with severe sight loss to use London rail services, both underground and overground, without assistance, using signs' built-in RFID tags to create local GPS.
