Hello, stranger. 

My name is Daniel Liakh, I'm an art-director. I come up with ideas and deal with pictures. 

I was born in Ukraine, where I grew up and studied to become a specialist in international relations. Luckily for me and my country – I failed.

For the past three years I've been living in London, drinking beer, complaining about weather and practicing british accent (it's still horrible). 

I was also lucky enough to work at some cool places with some amazing people.

It's good to let people know about your view on ads, so here is mine: I understand that people absolutely hate ads and are ready to pay not to see them. And that's what excites me most about this job. 

If you feel like I can be of any use, get in touch. I'm a nice guy, really.
