Graphic Design & Art Direction
There are two core beliefs that drive Igor Brezhnev’s art direction and graphic design practice. First is that purpose of design is to deliver the core message to the intended audience and inspire desired action. Second is that authenticity and simplicity are the two legs that do the walking for any message.
In the span of the last decade Igor has worked with clients in variety of fields and sizes located all over the world. His work has been featured in graphic design compilation books, print design inspiration blogs and has won awards. Igor utilizes his multidisciplinary knowledge of graphic and typographic design, visual and verbal communication, history, linguistics, sociology and psychology to help his clients deliver their messages.
Currently his practice is primarily focused on helping independent entrepreneurs—artists, writers, musicians, photographers, craftspeople, and individuals in professional service fields, small local businesses that are integral parts of their communities and organizations that have a great vision to change the world for the better.

Igor has a fondness for printed matter, whether it is a business card or a book. His designs are often tactile, his selection of materials and special finishing processes engage the audience from the first touch.
Igor has a special love affair with books and thrives on giving special attention to typography, white space and simple and vivid imagery. He is an avid reader and also a writer, so every aspect of book design has naturally been of interest to him.
Identity design is focused on creating symbols that represent people, ventures and ideas. In over a decade of working in this field Igor has designed many of such symbols—brands and logos for companies, personal sigils and monograms. His personal design style is highly geometric, typographical and grounded in study of symbolism. As an art director Igor often employs illustrators and artists to get a very specific feel for his identity projects.
Website & Digital Media Design
Igor has gotten his start in web and digital media design. His first foray into the design field was creating websites as early as 1996, and over the years led to the change of his career from Information Technology to Art Direction and Graphic Design. He has deep understanding not only of layout and presentation, but the underlying technology of digital media. Currently Igor works with SquareSpace as the platform for website creation.
