Thanks for visiting D'Arzu Design!
My name is Diana Arzumanyants, and this is my portfolio website. I am a designer currently located in beautiful San Francisco, CA.
I specialize in creating innovative, functional, user-centered websites that focus on the user’s experience. I'm experienced in HTML, CSS, ActionScript 3.0, illustration, graphic design, photo manipulation, and photography.
I have a wide array of skills in both traditional and digital mediums. Having degrees in Math, Advertising and Web Design & Interactive Media, gives me an advantage of understanding conceptual and technical parts of the creative development process. I believe in creativity
with a purpose, and that a part of success in any project relies on defining the core audience and conveying the message using the right medium. Great design could say more than thousands of words. I like to "speak to the audience" using visual language, to convey ideas with the power of colors, shapes, and beautiful typography. I use different design techniques and media, from watercolor and pencil drawings, to 3D models and video. I experiment with all of them and allow the projects to unfold in unexpected ways.
As a modern-day designer, I take advantage of the technology to create my projects. I keep my skills and knowledge base fresh by subscribing to various websites, reading books and magazines. I have been lucky to live in different countries and I have met many talented people. The traveling experience helps me to better understand human beings, what is extremely important when you design with a specific audience in mind. I am an inspired and fortunate person. I love what I do and take pride in it, enjoying every part of the creative process. It feels great to see ideas come to life from the concept to completion. By taking every project personally, through the competitive analysis, research, and of course creativity, I challenge myself to push limits and always try to explore the most innovative paths to improve the quality of work and my performance. I keep learning every day, and am always open for great projects.
I'm currently available for freelance work.
