HI, I'M ILINA

During the 15 years I've been in the design field, I've been driven by a deep curiosity about how visuals affect our perception, comprehension and behavior. I'm ever fascinated by (and a life-long student of) how through design I can tell stories, change minds and prompt actions, before the viewer ever reads any of the words on a page.

In understanding the power of design I've realized two things: 1) Beauty is just a small part of what design is all about, and 2) Every pixel counts.

Intentionally or not, a design sends very specific messages to the viewer on an intuitive level. That's why I believe a design strategy should be very carefully planned.

A little more about me:

My name is pronounced "E-lee-nah" Born and raised in Bulgaria Studied Graphic design 1999-2003 in University of Bridgeport and Purchase College, SUNY I've launched two personal web app projects and about to launch a third I'm also a photographer (I've been published in magazines and on billboards worldwide, and on over 400 book covers) I also like to write songs, rollerblade, dance, and read books about psychology and the brain.

What Clients Say:

"Ilina is a sophisticated designer with strong sense of brand and attention to detail. She designed our Daily Challenge web application under very tight deadlines. Always communicated effectively and worked as a seamless part of our team throughout our entire process. She has great user experience instincts and provides beautiful interfaces that are both elegant and usable. I would hire her in an instant and would love to work with her again." - Sean Landry, Head of Design, MeYouHealth.com

Mike Roberts Our file sharing project was large and divided into several phases over several months. The extremely high quality of Ilina's work was the same on day 180 as it was on day 1. The design not only looked good but was also intuitive and very easy to use. It was a definite hit with our customers. There is absolutely no question Ilina has secured the number one "go to" slot for design at PerfectShare. Bottom line... Ilina does design like Mozart does music. Hire her." - Mike Roberts, CEO, PerfectShare.net

Alison Held“Hiring Ilina to create my brand identity and website was one of the best things that I did for my business.  She spent time with me to create crystal clear messaging and target my audience.  Then she produced the most beautiful website, logo, business cards and stationary.  It has been 5 years and I still receive many compliments on all these items and am continuing to attract my ideal clients!” - Alison Held, M.S. Nutritionist, HealthfulDirection.com

"Ilina is rapidly emerging as one of the best web designers in the world. Her instincts, creativity, attention to detail, balance, use of color and typography are second to none. To top it off, she's a joy to work with, endeavoring to understand a project's requirements deeply in order to deliver the perfect, timeless design." - Rck Ellis, Founder, ElliLab.com

"Ilina is a top-notch professional who delivers high quality results. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience working with her to completely re-design our website. She was very responsive and detailed in her communication. We appreciate the amount of time she spent via email and phone collecting our thoughts and feedback. After hearing our initial ideas she suggested great improvements. The first draft mock-ups were delivered earlier than we anticipated and nearly identical to the final version we chose. We worked together to make slight refinements to the website until it was to our complete satisfaction. Ilina is very detail oriented and customer focused - thanks for the awesome new website! We would not hesitate to use her again or recommend her to others. " - Brad and Melinda, iKonicApps.com

"Working with Ilina for the past 7 months has been an incredibly productive experience. Her design work and her professionalism are second to none.  I will never again work with anyone else besides Ilina for design.  She is by far the best!" - PJ Palmieri, RealAdvice.com
