I'm Max Kulakov
and I'm Designer

about me

I am currently a senior designer at YKSoft. I live and work in Saratov and pursue a Master's degree in Computer Science at the Saratov State University.

I began my career in design in 2018. I started as a graphic designer and eventually realized that I’m more interested into the sphere of interfaces and products. Since then, I managed to work with many companies and in various projects, such as the Venrok sports app, the Lifetables habit tracker, and the Easy-Traveling travel app. More cool and interesting cases can be viewed below on the page.

At the same time, I continue to work as a graphic designer, helping such companies as Youcon Events Group, Jedi.University and LoyalMed with visual and identity issues.
