Hi, I'm Vlad!
In 1998 I started designing user interfaces for web sites and software apps. However, whenever I had some free time, I created digital pictures, to express myself and improve my Photoshop skills.
In 2003 I started Vladstudio website as a way to share my pictures in the form of desktop wallpapers.
Today, I am dedicated to turning Vladstudio into my full time job. I love what I do, and I am happy that many people around the world love it, too!
In this interview, Vlad shares with us his humble beginnings as a designer and how he got started with creating wallpapers as full-time self-employment. He also shares his ideas, inspirations, and future plans. Vlad has a unique style of illustration, with simple lines and shapes. His work has great themes, which promises to win the hearts of viewers and make them happy! So let’s move on to have a digital chat with him!
If you are not acquainted with Vladislav Gerasimov and his work, I suggest you take a look at his personal website, where you’ll find many examples of his creative genius. Surfing on the Web you’ll notice how much Vladislav’s work is appreciated and loved by everyone. His illustrations and wallpapers - filled with colors, emotions and juxtapositions – have graced our desktops for many years now.
I am not famous enough yet for others to write my biography :-) My biography so far is quite ordinary, except I was lucky to transform my hobby into business, and therefore, make my living with things I love to do. I am 29-year-old, live in cold but beautiful Siberian town, Irkutsk, near lake Baikal (deepest in the world).
Vladstudio.com offers the usual kind of digital art given away as desktop decorations. It's got good selection too, and just because it's not massively different doesn't stop it being good art. There are some stunning scenes to choose from here. Download instructions are pretty obvious, and there are plenty of resolutions to choose from.
