Hello! My name is Vlad Golovach.
I am a designer working mostly in UX and UI design in Padua, Italy.
I love to do UX projects with complex user activities and/or high ergonomic requirements — the ones that require serious research and a lot of head scratching.
I have been working in ergonomics and usability for 20 years and designed a lot. I have also written books on design, as well as two Bodies of Knowledge on UI and UX design & research.
They tell me that I excel in:
Besides that, I'm rather skilled as a graphic and publication designer as part of my current practice lies in corporate identities and web design.
Why don't you hire me?
For a last couple of years I have worked primarily on large, ongoing projects covered by NDA so below just the smaller or older ones. See additional projects on Behance.
I have worked in design since the last millennium, first as a graphic designer1994—2000, then as an information architect2000 and UI (later UX) designer and art director.
I was a co-founder and an art director2001—2016 of Usethics (recently closed due to war), the first software design and usability company in Russia. We specialised in user research, ergonomics, deep understanding of users and requirements.
At Usethics I have:
Usethics has grown from a 2-man team to 25+ designers and usability researchers. The company has developed an impressive portfolio and a top-notch reputation for designing big, complex systems with serious ergonomic requirements.
In 2016 I decided to leave Russia for good, sold my share in Usethics, and soon left Russia for Israel. Now I reside in Padua with my Italian wife, building myself a new life on the banks of Bacchiglione.
