Sasha Taran


Clean, structured design with character. A curiosity for data, and a love for the visual and performing arts.


Hey! I'm Sasha. I am a designer & illustrator focused on user experience design with 5+ years of experience.

My focus is in UI/UX, web and mobile design. I'd describe my aesthetic as clean and playful. I like to inform my designs with a balance of data analytics, research and intuition. In July 2016 I finished a course in User Experience Design at General Assembly.

I graduated from the School of Visual Arts in 2012 with a BFA in Illustration. Since then, I have gained experience working as a print and digital production artist, designer and illustrator for a variety of clients. I am based in Brooklyn, NY.

I am currently open for full-time opportunities in the UI/UX field as well as freelance projects, whether design, user experience, brand strategy or illustration.

Please also check out my illustration portfolio.

When I'm not making visual art, I can be found performing improv comedy and characters in various bars and basements around Manhattan and Brooklyn. (Which also serves as a great source of inspiration and insight during the design process!)
