Sergei’s video and animation background is betrayed by his love of GIFs, of which he cultivates a large library for use at appropriate points in team IM conversations.
Our man in Russia, Sergei has been working together with Jon since the early days of Hanno. What started off as a collaboration on a small freelance project soon turned into a long-standing friendship and plenty of battle-scars won as they ~~crafted HTML email templates~~ built websites together.
Having moved away from video production, and on to motion design and animation, he’s a self-taught designer who has since built up front-end coding ability over the years. He’s deeply detail-oriented, with a deep bank of web design expertise, which is constantly in demand from the rest of the team.
When Sergei’s not working, he can be found rewatching his favourite comedy shows, hiking & snowboarding, or riding Booster — he’ll never admit it but the latter is the main reason why he’s visiting St. Petersburg so often ;)
He’s a lover of great coffee, trappist beers, and making good cocktails, although he still has some work to do, before he’s at the level of one of his personal idols.
