Marat Ryndin

product designer, Writer, and startup Consultant in Boston, Massachusetts

What I'm missing in a purple mohawk and lumberjack beard I make up in business knowledge, writing skills and a sense of humor. Not just about pixels.

Design
I believe in combining great user experience (UX) with aesthetically appealing visual design as well as staying current on all the latest thinking in product design, prototyping, startups & apps (web, iOS & Android).

Writing
I believe in producing great copy on any subject in the style that’s appropriate for its target audience. It can range from officially dry to obnoxiously witty (preferably the latter). Twitter also taught me how to be concise (not to mention how to deal gracefully with angry idiots).

Startups
Keen interest and knowledge of anything startups related. Product design, agile development process, pitching, funding, best business tools & apps for startups, etc.

Consulting
If you're building a product from scratch and don't know where to begin talking to me would be a pretty good start. No bullshit, no buzzwords. Just solid info, based on working in the industry for many years. With a good dose of humor.

Interviews
Recently I've been getting some interview requests on the subjects I'm knowledgeable about. These are fun to do and my interviewers have been pleased with the results. If you're running a podcast or a Youtube channel, and think I might contribute something useful to it, get in touch via Twitter.

When Not Working
Sponge info, talk to interesting people, read a ton (about design, tech, startups, foreign policy, politics, science, economics, society, etc), play and watch soccer (sometimes hockey), listen to podcasts, read a lot, travel, watch streaming movies & TV shows (early cord cutter), go to live music events, take pictures, listen to a lot of music (especially EDM & rock), write standup, life hack, manage finances like a boss.

Anything Else?
I'm a quick-witted, well-traveled, fully functioning bilingual mishmash of an American and a European (I could do this entire profile in a non-Latin based language). Spotify addict. I prefer empirical data and reason to shouted opinions and emotional appeals.
