Email App
Role: Interaction Design, Visual Design, Information Architecture
I was the product design lead for a flagship productivity product of the company, the "Pochta@Mail.Ru" email app. I designed the app from  scratch for multiple platforms (e.g., iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone, Samsung Bada, J2ME and Mobile Web) and took care of it during a few major overhauls. Now the app has millions of daily active users and is rated as one of the best email clients on a market.

Major Redesign
After the huge success of myMail, the Mail.Ru Group decided to redesign the flagship app in the same way for the majority of the user base (outside of the United States).

Calendar App
Role: Interaction Design, Visual Design, Information Architecture
One of the experimental projects that I did for the company was a calendar service for our users. This was a great opportunity to try something new in a visual style we had been using, as well as interaction methods. I created solutions that we reused later in other apps. Some of them were patented.

Design System
Role: Interaction Design, Visual Design, Information Architecture
I've initiated a major mobile product design system for the company, called "Paradigm." That was a critical project for the company because it enabled Mail.Ru to launch and relaunch over 20 projects within just two years. That’s a very impressive performance for such a large company.

While working at Mail.Ru as a lead product designer, I was also working on projects other than productivity apps.
