We were also active here in the Blog, having prepared several new articles. We have shared our ideas about important features of efficient product design organized along the letters of the alphabet. They were posted in the articles ABC of Product Design and ABC of Product Design. Part 2.  Then we added the post with our recommendations about books on UI/UX design in the post Design books set: UX, UI, HCI. Improving with experts. The other post in the blog last month called Iconic Simplicity. The Vital Role of Icons was about the types and features of icons as the vital part of effective and successful UI/UX. As usual, we are always keen to share our experience and discuss new ideas as well as basics of design, so this month we are preparing new articles and case studies for our readers.


Certainly, we filled up our Instagram page with new photos featuring our everyday life and work…

Tubik Studio Designers


… and we were active and eager to answer questions about design, UI/UX, tools, processes and prototyping at Quora that resulted in a great number of views and gave us a chance of being helpful to those who are interested in design.

In addition, in November Tubik Studio CEO Sergey Valiukh took part at Ping IT conference in Odessa as a speaker and told about our studio work principles and organization.

Obviously, apart from everything mentioned above, we all had interesting and complex work on various design tasks on UI/UX, logo and branding, illustrations and motion design. One more good news about last month: understanding the integral role and importance of the correct and appropriate copy for successful and efficient design of different products, such as landing pages or branding items for example, we broadened our scope of services with copywriting. So the magic of words since now can be also professionally provided by Tubik Studio via copywriting tasks together with any kind of design tasks in which we are already really experienced.


So, with a new flash of inspiration and creativity, we have started the winter, looking forward to Christmas and New Year, hoping for better and being happy of chance to do the work we love.

Behance Review Tubik Studio

Behance Portfolio Reviews Dnipropetrovsk. Great power of inspiration.

In the previous articles, providing our tips for beginning designers and our vision of «must and mustn’t» in design job, we have already mentioned that it is very important for designers to take active part in various professional events. They enable their participants to communicate alive with other designers, to listen to the speeches of masters in the field, get some tips and guides from them and ask questions about their work and routine. Visiting events, conferences and meetups makes possible to feel new trends in design and IT, to socialize with the people who have the same interests and problems, to discuss new tools and technologies, ways of project management and time management an so on and so forth.


Taking all that into account, Tubik Studio is a permanent participant of various events in design world. We have already told you here in our Blog about Dribbble Meetup in Lviv which became a great memory in our studio life among different others, already numerous so far.

Moreover, our studio CEO Sergey Valiukh is often invited to be a speaker at these meetings and he is always ready to share his experience with other designers and managers. For example, recently together with Tubik Studio designers he went to Kiev to take part as a speaker at IT-Weekend conference and the judge of IT-Awards competition. The event was hosted by SoftServe company and gathered people working in the sphere of IT and design from both different parts of Ukraine and other countries. That was a great chance to communicate with the colleagues, discuss global and local trends, share opinions about tools and innovations, present own ways of work and collaboration, get into new connections and discuss new future cooperation prospectives.

The discussion of the latest event also got all the members of the studio back to memories of the day that became special in the history of Tubik as it was the first event which we hosted and organized by ourselves. It was Behance Portfolio Reviews Dnipropetrovsk that was held in May 2015 and became the bright and interesting meeting for experienced and beginning designers.


Behance Portfolio Reviews are the set of events in different countries of the world organized by Behance, the worldwide network of sites and services aimed at self-promotion and presentation of creative people. This network, owned by Adobe, is not just a platform where creators can present their work and customers can find whom to hire for their projects. What is more, it is a great community and amazing spot for development. One of the ways to prove it are Behance Portfolio Reviews regularly organized in different countries of the world.


Tubik Studio Behance


This spring Tubik Studio was a host of Behance Portfolio Reviews in Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine. On the one hand, this experience was exciting and inspiring, on the other hand, it was a responsible job and we wanted to support this useful and significant initiative by Behance in design community of Ukraine.


The preparations and discussions started much earlier, in the beginning of winter, and all the team was full of inspiration. Special lettering was created, we started sharing the information about the event via our social accounts and think over the program so that it could be interesting both for beginners and experienced designers. Also the studio announced that it started acceptance of the portfolios by designers, best of which were going to be awarded with special prizes from Behance. They had been accepted almost up to the date of the event and reviewed by the team of professional designers as judges.

The second part of the event was devoted to the review of portfolios. Among all the portfolios sent to the studio, 15 were defined as leaders, and two designers were awarded with special prizes from Behance, one of which was the original book from Behance «Super-Modified: The Behance Book of Creative Work» and the second – the main prize – was the free subscription on Adobe Creative Cloud.


The event was obviously bright and memorable and gave us not only precious moments of communication and education, but also valuable experience in hosting such events and organization of special time and place for the designers keen to feel the atmosphere of modern design community at the international level. Although our team are keen representatives of online Behance network, presenting our designs and concepts there regularly, this time it was something new and amazing.

Dribbble Meetup Lviv: work, fun and inspiration

Designer’s life is always full of concentration on work and it gives a professional probably the most important part of the improvement that is practical experience. Although, today it is not enough to get better: modern designers, especially in the spheres of web and app design, which are so young and fast-growing, should be ready to learn all the time and communicate with the colleagues to broaden their own professional horizons. Knowing that, Tubik Studio designers and managers don’t support the idea of getting limited only to job tasks therefore we take parts in various events and meetups. And this post is about one of them.


As you could see from the photos on our Facebook page, in winter we visited an amazing event — Dribbble Meetup Lviv on 21 February 2015. Let’s look at it in a bit more detail.


Dribbble meetup


Well, as Dribbble is an integral part of our designing work and life, we are keen followers of all its news and events. In December 2014 we took part in Dribbble Meetup Dnipropetrovsk and our CEO Sergiy Valiukh was one of the invited speakers. This time he had been invited to speak for the participants of Dribbble Meetup Lviv, so Tubik Studio couldn’t miss the opportunity to feel that atmosphere of creativity and inspiration.




As Lviv is not that close to Dnipropetrovsk, where we are based, we came there beforehand and didn’t miss a chance to look around. The city is absolutely gorgeous – our Instagram profiles were blasting with photos, even though we had very little time to walk around the city.


The first Dribbble Meetup in Lviv was hosted by SoftServe Design Office and we were invited to visit their head office. We had a tour around the place and then were able to communicate with our colleagues from SoftServe design team as well as attend the lecture given by the designer-typographer Alexey Vanyashyn, a graduate and a lecturer of The British Higher School of Art and Design.

There were 6 experienced speakers peforming that day, the first of whom was the CEO of Tubik Studio Sergiy Valiukh with the presentation called «One day of the studio life».
