The Other Me is a series of drawing that illustrates the other half of yourself; feelings, actions, thoughts, that conflicts. It is personal work, but also a common situation many people could relate to; no one lives life without any conflicts. It is not the answers to the questions, but hopefully an opportunity to face ones inner self.

The challenge is to convey a very complex technically complex principle and make it understandable to customers. A conscious step was taken away from numerous similar companies, using in their communications technological images that are difficult to perceive. We wanted to show a technology company, but with a human face, reliable, modern, but understandable. A unique typographic solution for the logo was made, in which it is visually still in the process of assembly. Also, a system of official graphics was developed, which is also based on the collection of parts into a single whole.
The design team was commissioned to design a memorabilia for "Fleet of Time" (released as Back In Time in North America), one of the top Chinese box office films in China, adapted from a popular Chinese novel. Directed by Zhang Yi Bai, the story is set in the 1990s/2000s Beijing, a coming-of-age tale of 5 friends who grew apart over time. The objective was to create something more than just a usual film souvenir set and it has to appeal to fans of both the film and novel.
The objective of the project was to design an identity for the TEDx event that could interact with the audience about the main theme ”Inside-Out”. The challenge with this project was to integrate the context of inner and outer worlds in one poster which was comprehensible and yet aesthetically pleasing. A red transparent plastic cover was used for attendees to filter the light by colors to remove the complexity of a visual subject. The process of using the red filter engaged the audience to be a part of this design by experiencing the perception of inner and outer meanings dynamically.
This album is the part of big graduation project which Dina Ruzha has done in collaboration with talented calligraphers from Russia and Ukraine. The album contains works covering different directions of calligraphy from more classical types of writing to experimental ones, made by non-traditional instruments and materials.

The author is grateful for participating in the project.
