My full name is Yulia Kryazheva, I live and work in Amsterdam.
Born and grown up in Novosibirsk (Siberia, Russia), I received MSc in Architecture and moved to the Netherlands. After a couple of years at architectural studio's I had realized that my interests were more driven by the people and their experiences, than by the buildings and technology. Later I worked on quite diverse projects: from concept development and UX for the websites and software, to creating museum maps and complex visual schemes, to assisting curator of Moscow Architectural Biennale and doing research in mass housing, to organizing roundtable discussions, workshops and conferences. These projects taught me about a different role of a designer: I started to appreciate its facilitating and observant nature, rather than the "creator" one.
I always engage my clients in the process, so we shape together a solution, which fits.
My languages are English, Dutch, Russian and a bit of French.
