About Rustam Isaev
My name is Rustam. I’m from Odessa, Ukraine and I’m 24 years old. After the graduation from Mechnikov National University of Odessa and obtaining the higher education in the speciality ‘International Relations’ there I figured out that I want to devote myself to something more creative. Since then I became really passionate about drawing. I went to ’Step’ Computer Academy of Odessa into Graphic Design faculty and studied art history, graphic design principles, adobe photoshop, vector graphics, branding/editorial design and a little bit of traditional art there. I also participated in character design challenge ‘Golden Byte’ and took the first place there. During the preparation of the project ‘Rocket Paw’ for this contest I felt the taste of concept art and realized that this is what I want to do. After that I have passed character and environment design online-courses ‘Digital Painting’ and gained a lot of useful information and practice there. I worked as a graphic designer and illustrator for companies such as Snapchat, BGO online-casino and MissinGames. And now it’s a big pleasure for me to represent my country at such a global event as -ING Festival!
