Hey there, I'm Alexey Shklianko, a graphic designer with 20 years of design experience under my belt, a bachelor's degree in Ethnology, and a master's degree in Contemporary Art and Visual Plastic Arts. I started as a designer at advertising agencies — that's where I found my passion for visual brand identity, both product and corporate, as well as label and package design.
For eight years, as a senior lecturer at the Communication Design department of the Belarusian State University, I have been sharing my experience with aspiring graphic designers. Occasionally, I like getting on the stage of local ad festivals and marketing conferences and talking about "The brand identity with an open ending", "Setting brands free", and other design-related things. Sometimes, I help out my friends — the founders of the Belarusian Community in Hungary or organizers of the Advertising Festival ADNAK that advocates reviving the Belarusian language in the ad industry — all those who fight for the good cause.
My clients are startups and mature businesses, small and large, advanced and traditional, representing IT, financial, and industrial sectors.
For every project, I assemble a team of professionals I trust and with whom I’ve gone through fire and water over the years: a brand and communications strategist, a verbal brand identity specialist, creative copywriters, illustrators, 3D designers, UI/UX designers, and videographers. I always dig deeper and uncover the business problem to be solved via strategy, creativity, and design.
When I am in-between projects, you can accidentally bump into me in Milan, Helsinki, Copenhagen, or on a plane: whenever I get a chance, I explore the world, cultures and cultural codes, architecture, and urban peculiarities of each city I visit.
