Hello! I am Olga Bolshchikova
My design journey started with print design and branding identity, then transitioned to digital design. Currently, I focus on product design and creating a user experience valuable to both customers and businesses.
While working, I strive to achieve a harmonious blend of functionality and aesthetics. I find Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's aphorism inspirational: "Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."
I am curious and never afraid to say "I don't know". On the contrary, I think that a willingness to admit this just opens the doors for more opportunities and experiences. Staying open-minded and getting insights from individuals much smarter than myself is what shapes me into the designer I am today.
And I Do Other Things
I am a musician (guitar, piano) and a singer. For most of my life, I was singing in Russian, now I am learning how to sing in English.
I am a knitter and a crocheter. My hobby helps me to be very detail-oriented. I love creating lacy and exquisite items and detailed toys. You can see them on my website NiftyKnits.
I am a world traveler and a hiker. My husband and I have visited 20 countries, 122 cities (and counting!). One highlight: hiking the Yosemite Falls Trail, the tallest waterfall in North America.
