Yana Koster

Senior UI/UX Design Lead, Creative Director, Visual Designer, Project Manager.

I have enjoyed designing for more than twenty years. I've done it as an employee, contractor, full- and part-time freelancer... And now – as an independent professional.  

 

I was gradually moving towards professional independence. Now, after seven years of conducting business part-time, I'm glad to announce that KosterDesign is formally a full-time enterprise.


My areas of expertise include:
• Responsive web design
• UX/UI

• User interaction/user testing
• Mobile app design and UX

• Print and advertising
• Layout, color, and typography
• Remote project management
• Marketing & advertising

• SEO

• Creative consulting
