Vitali Poluzhnikov – Strategic Designer. Today I'm based in Stockholm and I'm part of The Barkas Collective.

I work with passsionate brands, ambitious startups & friends. While my specialty is user experience design, I have a diverse range of skills and passion when it comes to early stage concepts and businesses.

Hard Skills

Mobile & Web Experience Design, Startup Strategy, Front-end Development, WordPress, Visual Design & Branding.


From Stavropol, Russia. Partially raised in LA. Lived in Vancouver, Montréal, Malmö/Copenhagen. Currently based in Stockholm. Curious about life in St.Petersburg, Sao Paolo & Tokyo at some in the future.


I’m driven by integrity in design & business. My favourite challenge is not to add anything extra. I’m interested in the impact of internet on society, disruptive ideas, geopolitics & culture. I enjoy the wilderness, sauna & coffee/beer talks.


A proud drop-out from John Molson School of Business & Hyper Island graduate.
