Renat Usmanov


I’m a Senior UX/UI Designer certified by Google. I have come a long way from a simple Painting Artist to a Full-stack Web Developer, from the birth of Startups to their Collapse. I realized that my Love for creating interfaces did not leave me, and She carefully led me to you. Now this experience has become the core of my favorite profession!

I’m a T-Shaped Designer with 8+ years of relevant experience in User Interface Design, User Experience Design, Branding, interaction design, accessibility and web standards. Enthusiastic web professional motivated by challenging projects and deadlines. I have been working on the web and print media since 2008.

Understand people you design for

The midbrain or mesencephalon is the forward-most portion of the brainstem and is associated with vision, hearing, motor control, sleep and wakefulness, arousal (alertness), and temperature regulation. The name comes from the Greek mesos, “middle”, and enkephalos, “brain”.

A designer who does not study how the brain works and the basis of the biology of human behavior – such a designer plays a guessing game! UI/UX must excite the midbrain and make the user perform the movement according to the prototype scenario. My trick is to hit the target the first time!

My history

I’ve developed YappiX CMS is a native application builder based on the No-Code principle, containing many functional modules for various business areas. This includes voice recognition modules based on GPT-3 algorithms and an augmented reality (AR) editor. Additionally, it is possible to connect automated UI/UX analytics to further adjust the structure of the application based on user feedback and data on the use of its various elements using machine learning. See the project summary.
2013 - 2015
From 2013 to 2015, I aided in implementing the core of the Siberian CMS (Open-Source App Mobile Builder CMS from France). This gave me experience in understanding the specifics and problems of developing “mobile app creators”. In the process of implementing and promoting Siberian CMS, I acquired a wide range of acquaintances, among whom were not only future partners of my future YappiX CMS project, but also more than 2.5 thousand subscribers waiting for the launch of my platform. Interaction with third-party international web studios was also conducted, based on which the necessary functionality for the “application creator CMS” was formed.

In 2015, (then 2020), I became a resident of the accelerator of the GAU “IT PARK” business incubator (Kazan, Russia) with the YappiX CMS project. Here you can read about it: 

In 2016, ECWID (USA) recommends YappiX CMS on its official forum to support their customers. ECWID has a capitalization of more than $ 500,000,000.
