Dinara graduated from Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University in Russia. Originally a graphic designer, in 2011 she started her professional career as an art director at a lighting studio, gradually taking on responsibility from visual appearance and output to the development of lighting concepts. Determined to acquire a solid knowledge in the field of lighting, in 2016 she obtained a Master’s Degree in Architectural Lighting Design from Hochschule Wismar, Germany. Since then, Dinara collaborated with different teams and has had a chance to participate in various international projects, including museums, shopping malls, airports, façades and urban lighting. Experimenting in different fields such as lighting, product and visual design, Dinara explores the communicative power of design language, thereby enhancing the interdisciplinary approach of ACTLD team.
