Who are you?

Hey, I’m Julia. I currently live and work in San Francisco, CA. I’m originally from Russia and moved here a few years ago. I got my Master in CS and worked as a freelance engineer for a few years. I got to meet people from all over the world.

My biggest passions are design, travel and photography. I also love camping, mixing cocktails and studying architecture.

What are you working on?

I’m a Senior Product Designer at Shyp where we are redefining the way people ship. I work on exciting stuff including completely new product Shyp on Web, holistic system design, establishing UX patterns, internal tools and much more. I share some of my work on the Shyp Dribbble team page.

Previously I worked at Twitter on a lot of growth initiatives including new signup and on-boarding flow as well as contributed to a new Twitter design language.

I also I run a travel blog and recently started a personal project called Oak & Fog about discovering new experiences. More on it soon!

This happened to be my favorite. I rarely like my work (after some time I want to redesign everything) - but this project I’m proud of to this day. It set the ground for Oak & Fog - a work in progress that I’m really passionate about.

Tell us about your setup. What tools did you use to create the shot (e.g. hardware, software, pens, paper, blowtorch)?


I own a MacBook 13-inch with Retina display that is perfect for both working at home and carrying while travel. I also have a bunch of mobile devices for real-time testing of my design assumptions. I do a lot of sketching so I carry my DotGrid book around.

Hey guys, Here's a preview of one of my last projects at ThoughtSpot! Over the last year, I've led the new version of our product's look and feel. The idea was to build a scalable and modular design language that could be built upon over time. Here’...

This is tough! I’m a fan of work that Jonathan Moreira did for ThoughtSpot. I love designing systems myself and appreciate how structured and organized the layout is as well as how aesthetically pleasing it is.
