Alexander Vilinskyy
designer,‎ founder,‎ inventor

I contributed to apps like Grammarly, Spark, and Documents that became a benchmark for productivity tools. In 2024 I'm running design studio Super Clear for AI-powered startups, building my own products, and researching future of work.

I design digital products, sustainable businesses, powerful brands and creative teams. I believe that by improving communication, we will unlock next quadrillion in economy.

What people say about my work

When I'm hired by founders, they receive a bundle of my "features": workbooks of progress, team management, creative direction, and zoom jokes.

Alexander's collaborative and direct leadership style drive focus on what matters, especially in fast-paced and early stage environments. Building alongside Alex is a joy.

Kelly McEttrick, Co-Founder at Decipad

Alexander is a highly empathetic and impactful product thinker. He pushes what’s best for the user, his process cuts through ambiguity, and his designs are highly effective.

Renato Valdés Olmos, Head of Design at Grammarly

Alex is one of the most professional and talented designers I've ever known. His communication skills and out of the box thinking inspire the team to achieve higher results together.

Eugene Plokhoj, Head of Product at Readdle

What people say about my management

I build creative teams to create world-class product and design. I made dozens of great hires, who delivered the project to 100% and stayed within their teams for years.

Alexander has built clear, transparent process compared to all other jobs I had. I had a space for freedom, opportunities, creativity, and rare trust on multiple projects that we finished together.

Kolom, Motion Design at Super Clear

The creative process by Alexander made him the best design manager I ever worked with and his creative direction is unique. He rapidly gets all aspects and helps you exceed your own expectations.

Dmytro, Concept Design at Super Clear

I was hired by Alexander and no one came close to his level of empathy, clarity and support. I could always rely on his judgement and make sure I was safe making bold decisions and get his support.
