Anastasiya has worked in marketing and advertising since 2006 and has been on the Depot team since 2011. 

«The main reason people turn to branding agencies is that they are looking for an eye-catching visual image. And it is often the case that once an agency has created a high-quality, attractive packaging, a logo that sticks out from the crowd and a new corporate identity, it thinks it has done its job. The other way in which the brand is communicated are deemed to be less important. Nonetheless, the way we feel about people is often determined by what they say. A person's character and values are reflected in every statement they make. The same is true of brands. At Depot, when we create a brand we strive to look at every point of contact between the brand and the consumer, and offer the client a concept that is as integrated as possible, in which even the tiniest details have been carefully thought through.»

Anna Burlakina designer Hi, my name is Anya, and I think that it’s great to be a designer! It is something between the work of a detective and an actor - you then handle a case about a missing metaphor, collect «evidence», interrogate «witnesses», in a hurry throwing Chinese fast food into yourself, then get into the role of your target audience and try to feel their motivation.
A new day — a new cause and a new role!
