Dmitry Sulliwan is a graduate of the BHSAD programme Interactive Design and New Media. Now Dmitry is the art director of his own design studio — SULLIWAN.
During his studies, Dmitry and his coursemate were shortlisted in the prestigious D&AD Design Awards contest with a project for the company E-On. Dmitry's graduation project — an interactive installation — 'Heart of the City' brought him new customers and orders.
"Most of what I learned from the course, is now successfully applied in life. My approach to work before starting my studies at BHSAD and after them is striking — ranging from my ability to present to the client, to my time management of projects. And, of course, there are the teachers. I couldn't have imagined that I would be learning from people like Anton Yarusov, Ilya Ruderman, Oleg Paşchenko, Ilya Mikhailov and many others. Plus I want to give a special mention to Dima Karpov — the course curator, because he became my design 'godfather'! To upset a guy with biceps the size of my head with poor projects was something I fervently tried to avoid."
"After my studies, the development of my own studio went in a new direction — these skills have helped to structure my work, and my communication with clients and partners has reached a more professional level. For later projects, I drew on my fellow students and graduates as a resource, and now I periodically spend time in BHSAD giving lectures at intensives and courses."
