– So I will start if nobody minds.
In my “past life” I wanted to be many things:
President, Fashion Designer,
Oceanologist, Marketer and even
an HR Manager.
Yet my motivation and persistence reached 100% only in moments when I could unleash my creativity.
Like that time I created a fake Constitution declaring a new nation, or when I designed an epic quest for my friends based on the escape of Monte Christo. Imaginative Alyona may have helped a bit, but let’s be real: it was all me.
P.S. One day I will be a Creative Director, no matter what it takes.
I will start with saying that it’s difficult to be me (Shouldn’t have I said this? Probably not, but here comes the good part, so I think it can be considered as even), but even complicated brain has its advantages.
My brain works like Perpetuum Mobile , analysing what was done, can be done, could be done or couldn’t be done and etc.
In the end, my brain constantly produces the most annoying question for Persistent and Imaginative Alyona: «What if …?».
(Between you and me, it actually causes huge fights among the Alyonas). But in general, it helps! I think!
P.S. Without overthinking my career decisions, I may not have ended up in the creative industry. Proud of my brain for that!
I cannot live a day without imagining how all the things around me could be advertised, building connections in my head between ideas that were never linked before, and brainstorming 24/7.
If you ask me what my hobby is I would definitely tell you is “this”, meaning everything you see in this portfolio, all projects, designs, and even the copy. You see, being creative is my hobby, but it’s also my profession now. And it feels damn good.
P.S. My mission? Spread more creativity around the world and inspire people to live creatively fulfilling lives. Imagine that!
