Co-Founder and Chief Director
Throughout my career, I have rarely met creative professionals of Ms. Grishchuk’s caliber. She is simply one of the top graphics designers who shapes the industry. I have had the pleasure of working directly with Ms. Grishchuk and can attest to her outstanding expertise in our competitive field.
As anyone involved in fashion knows, the quality of capturing customers’ attention amongst all other competitors’ chaos is the key to any brands success.
Ms. Grishchuk was a natural choice for Monoroom because of her innate ability to represent ideas in an interesting and captivating ways that catch our target audience’s attention and as a result, directly increase sales.
Award-winning Fashion Designer.
I first knew of Ms. Grishchuk by word of mouth, due to her outstanding and original graphic design contributions to the field. As Ms. Grishchuk was both accomplished and distinguished, I knew she would make a perfect speaker for Krasnodar School of Art & Design and in October 2017, I invited her to lead a workshop for over 100 students. Ms. Grishchuk shared her experience in creating successful brands, highlighting her work as an art director and graphic designer, as well as explaining intersections with the business of fashion.
I later commissioned Ms. Grishchuk in a critical role, where I relied upon her graphic design expertise for a major rebranding project for my fashion brand.
As Graphic Designer, Ms. Grishchuk expertly conceptualized, created and executed the logo and branding concept for Nastya Nekrasova, which was later used for promotional purposes on the company website, packaging, apparel/accessory labels and printed materials. Her design inspiration of portraying sewing machine stitches in the logo to express the specificity of the brand was simply brilliant.
Ms. Grishchuk’s designs have not only been successful for the national market, but have been instrumental in expanding our collaborations with partners in France, Italy and other European countries.
It is in large part due to Ms. Grishchuk’s artistic branding vision and cutting-edge graphic design expertise that Nastya Nekrasova has achieved the level of success and recognition that it enjoys today.
Created brand identity.
I received a tremendous amount of positive feedback from my colleagues and industry regarding the rebranding of Nastya Nekrasova.
