I'm Yuriy - a Canadian product designer living in San Francisco.
I'm currently at YouTube making community features more awesome for YouTube Creators and their fans. Before that I was at Twitter where I've deigned a wide range of features and products. At both Twitter and Google I had the pleaure of running prototyping workshops with designers to help everyone get up to speed on the latest tools.
My friend Aaron and I started a design podcast called New Layer. We hope you enjoy it and send us feedback.
Back in Canada I worked on the app ecosystem for a Nokia phone called Asha. Previously to becoming a product designer I worked as a visual artist doing motion graphics for live events. I had the privilege of working with some of the biggest names in the electronic music industry like Armin Van Buuren, DJ Tiesto, Above & Beyond and many more. When I'm not designing I'm usually traveling and taking photos.
If you want to chat about design, bikes, adventure travel or anything else then drop me a line on Twitter.
