Vadim Sherbakov – Moscow, Russia

Something I admire 大ly, is when someone manages to create a blend of 现代 and 酿酒 that really works. I saw this workspace on dribbble, where it received a lot of love, 和 I knew it’d be the first post on Desk Inspire!

Tell us a little about yourself
My name is Vadim Sherbakov but I am better known by my project name – Madebyvadim. I am a freelance art-director specialising in web design 和 Ui/UX design for mobile applications. You can see my work on Behance的 和 dribbble.

I previously worked as a designer and later art-director in CG industry doing design/computer graphics for films, TV shows and advertising. In 2011 I started freelancing and released my first portfolio, which has been featured on Awwwards as a site of the day, and since then blessed with a clients 和 projects from all over the world.

How important is having a good workspace?
For me it is very important, since my space is setting the mood for myself and my work. To have a cool work space is like a good feeling about yourself 和 surroundings.
Your office has a lot of cool things inside it, has it been a case of building it up over time?
Yes. I love all things 现代-vintage or 酿酒 for that matter, as you probably guessed from my photos 🙂 I sell a few products on Creative 标记et (mockups and photos), so I love to photograph stuff and for that matter I buy a few things here 和 there what I find cool. That’s how my collection happens to be.
What do you use your setup mainly for?
I am a 大 believer in niche approach, meaning one person can be truly  at only one thing, so my setup is used only for what I do best: design 和 web/app design.
What’s the most important thing to you in a productive work environment?
My desk. I love it. It’s a custom built 酿酒 wood & iron desk 和 I always feel great when I am working at it. I love music as well, so it’s important to have a 大 ambient music to work with. (编辑: Vadim is using a pair of Sennheiser Momentums which I also use 和 高度 recommend).
Where did you get some of those cool pieces?
I like to shop online, I also like to find cool pieces in some shops around the world, for example my mousepad 和 table 灯 is from Grovemade, my desk is custom made by local wood craft shop here in Moscow, the clock is from the 主页concept (Russian) store. Other bits and pieces are from around the world – from Icel和ic hipster shops to local Moscow markets.
Is your workspace purely work, or for play as well?
I am one of those people who do not like to play, unfortunately. So only work 🙂
7. What’s your favourite thing in the room?
The room itself I would say. But if I asked to take out only one thing, then perhaps the desk… yes desk 🙂
8. Describe your perfect workspace/office.
I am sitting in it 🙂
