Meet Dmytro Tanets, full-time design maven, the contriver of impossible things and most importantly the man responsible for the look and feel of the Nosis/Infomatix product.
True genius lies in one’s ability to make manifest the inner workings of a mind, communicating sometimes difficult and nebulous ideas as if they were fundamental. Such is the task of Dmytro.
Possessing a multi-disciplinary skillset that transcended the need and evolved the product beyond what we could have imagined, Dmytro has communicated the vision of Nosis/Infomatix to the world, transmuting the idea into reality.
In this interview, Dmytro discusses his expertise in the field and what motivated him to pursue a career in design
1. Give us a brief introduction about yourself. How did you start your career as a designer?
I started my career as a marketing designer. One year later, I made the decision to switch my career from marketing design to UI/UX design. It was a difficult choice, but one that I felt was necessary in order to stay ahead of the curve. I started off by taking on small freelance jobs and working with Ukrainian startups. While it was a challenging transition, I feel that it has made me a better designer. I am now more focused on the user experience and how to create intuitive interfaces. I believe this is a key skill in the ever-changing world of technology. As more and more businesses move online, it is essential to have a strong understanding of UI/UX design in order to be successful.
I started my career at Digifico, a company that provides design and prototyping services for banks in Switzerland. It was a great opportunity to learn the ropes of the design industry and to work with some very talented people. My primary responsibilities were creating designs and prototypes for internal software applications.
2. How did you start working for Infomatix?
In 2019, I decided to take freelance work more seriously and found my first client on Upwork, Tomer Garzberg. Tomer was looking for someone to help with design projects. We started working together and he soon introduced me to Nosis, a startup that was looking for a full-time designer. I interviewed with Nathan, the founder of Nosis, and after a few months of freelancing, I accepted a full-time job offer and continue to work with Nathan and the team to this day. I’m grateful for the opportunities that freelance work has given me and the incredible people I’ve met along the way.
3. What are your favourite designing tools and why?
As someone who works in digital design, I am often asked which software programs I prefer for various tasks. When it comes to prototypes and layouts, I prefer Figma. one of the most popular designing tools available today, due to its user-friendly interface and powerful features. For simple prototyping animations, I like to use Principle. After Effects is my go-to choice for more complex animations on banners, NFTs, etc. Photoshop is still my favourite program for faster image edits.
4. How do you work cross-functionally with developers, project managers, etc.?
As the lead designer at Infomatix and Nosis, I am responsible for working with the development team to ensure that the finished product meets the requirements. In most cases, I receive the requirements from the development team lead who then gives me permission to work on the design. Once the design is complete I submit it to the team for approval. After that, it is up to the developers to implement the design and create the final product. In some cases, I may need to provide support during testing or development, but generally, my role is to simply design the requirements and submit them for approval.
5. What’s your creative process?
If I am making something brand new I always like to do my research and collect references first. This helps me to get a better understanding of the task at hand and also allows me to see what has been done before. If I am working on something that already exists, then I will just have a read at the requirements and start working on it. This way, I can get a better understanding of what I need to do and also ensure that I am not duplicating any work that has already been done. Ultimately, it just depends on the specific task at hand.
6. How do you deal with feedback?
Feedback is an important part of our work process. Nathan would give me feedback on my drafts, and then I would pass the drafts on to the developers with his comments. We would also discuss feedback together, to make sure that we were on the same page. In terms of dealing with feedback, it depends on the situation. Sometimes I would take Nathan’s feedback and make the changes myself, other times we would discuss the changes together with the developers. Either way, I found that open communication and a willingness to listen to feedback was essential for producing high-quality work.
7. Give us your vision on Infomatix and Nosis; where will it stand five years from now?
In five years, I believe that Nosis will be the perfect platform for investors. Our team is constantly innovating and striving to improve the user experience. Additionally, we are always working to improve the visuals of our platform. We want users to be able to easily find the information they are looking for. For Infomatix, I believe that it will be successful in five years because it is now focussing on more datasets and analysis. Data is becoming increasingly important in today’s world, and Infomatix is positioned to meet this demand. I believe that the team of experts will be able to provide valuable insights to the clients.
