general information

Member of the Union of Designers of Russia from 1993 to 2011.

In the summer of 2011, in an atmosphere of ridiculous secrecy, the leadership of the Union of Designers of Russia, without discussion with the members of the Union, joined it to the All-Russian People's Front, a political organization aiming to participate in the elections to the Duma in a bloc with the United Russia party.

Considering the actions of the leadership to involve the creative union in politics are absolutely unacceptable and destructive in relation to our organization and not being able to influence the change in the situation, from October 24, 2011, I was forced to terminate my membership in the Union of Designers of Russia.

 

2005–2019 — Chairman and member of the State Examination Commission of the UrSAU (graphic design, bachelors).
