Hi! My cat was against me writing this.

My name is Ilya (sounds like "eel-YAH"). I am 32 y.o. For the last 12 years I've been working in advertising as a communication strategist. I am here to help your company to figure out where you should heading and to point out the best way to get there.

I am digging deeper into business planning, communications, cross-channel experience, marketing researches, new technologies, sociology and psychology. My life goal is to elaborate on advertising theory based on real marketing experience, to keep it up to date and a step ahead of instant changing realities. I am an advocate of integrated approach, convergent culture, permission marketing and idea planning. I stand for the fact that digital is not a tool and even not an environment but a new way of thinking that we should apply for everything we do.

I am also believe that advertising could make the world a better place and in case there is such a possiblity we should be responsible for making that happened.
