To place side-by-side unexpected combinations of colors, shapes and ideas.
I learned this word when studying exam vocabulary while in pursuit of a Masters in Offshore Engineering, my first career in Russia. The word helped to clarify my life in the 90s, as a new immigrant to the US. "Juxtaposed" defined my experience, with all the unexpected cultural changes, contrasting values, and opportunities. And the booming world of the dot-com era, defining my years in LA, was a real juxtaposition as well - with its unprecedented combinations of technologies with design and arts. This drew me away from engineering to the world of art and technology, where I completed a 2-year degree for New Media Design. Then, in 2001, I launched my career as a multimedia designer freelancing under Juxtaweb.com, paying homage to my favorite word.
With years of experience, I have learned to combine analytical skills that favor usability, organization and structure, with my creative skills, to produce visually balanced, pleasing, yet functional work for my many private clients, as well as corporate employers.
Work samples (1999-2012) include:
Design work for automotive companies; clients in the arts, education and ecommerce industries; samples of personal projects in multimedia storytelling and photography.
