Alfa-Bank decided to please its clients, partners and employees with beautiful computer wallpaper and icons and approached us with this task. “Alfa means first”, — we thought and decided to devote the illustrations on the wallpapers to the trailblazers in various areas of human activity.

Characters Gallery

Denis Kortunov, 29 June 2011 Comments (0)

As you might have already noticed, we position Turbomilk as a studio perfect for drawing icons and interfaces without any other aspects of graphical works. In fact, we are clearly more than that. The only thing required from our client is the message: it should be as clear and simple as possible. Some time ago (rather long time ago) we started inventing and drawing characters. This is a traditional direction for studios that are involved in advertising but in the web and interface context it is a new direction.

In honour of WordPress’s thousandth theme, sold in ThemeForest (a huge graphic design store for websites and blogs), a competition for the best themed icon set has been organized. We had to draw WordPress-themed icons and compete with our colleagues from St. Petersburg Softfacade.

Free icons for Livejournal

Denis Kortunov, 17 January 2011 Comments (6)

Sometimes ago we participated in a competition for new icons for the Livejournal interface that we successfully failed, so to speak. You know how this happens. However we have the icons left now. We decided to place them until the later times and available for free.

Denis Kortunov, 21 December 2010 Comments (4)

We have updated our “About us” page – now it is largely devoted to our team. You can learn interesting facts about each of our staffers and you can rest assured that all of them are rather nice-looking (here is an insight on the photo shoot). Check out the list of all Turbomilk accounts in social networks and friend us everywhere. Also, each completed project in our portfolio is undersigned by each respective Turbomilker involved in it.

How we landed up on Channel One

Denis Kortunov, 30 November 2010 Comments (0)

A film crew of Channel One — the most prominent and popular channel in Russia — has recently visited our office. The reason for the visit was to record the story about how we thought up and drew the characters for the 2014 Sochi Olympics mascot contest. The main heroes of the report — Igor and Eugenia — were a bit worried and excited but pull themselves together and told us about the creative process.

Turbomilk photo session at PhotoPark

Denis Kortunov, 13 November 2010 Comments (0)

We have a page on our website where you can learn about the whole company and each Turbomilker individually. But there is just one tiny problem with it – it has not been updated for quite some time. Also, the pictures on it are not really cool. We’d rather have something more professional.

Подготовка к фестивалю 404

Better late than never! 404 Fest was a real success! All employees of Turbomilk have contributed all of their souls and efforts into organizing the event.

And also check out the updates we made to the Rabbit-no-way page in our portfolio. We added some images and pictures there.

Robotodo

Slava Kislyakov, 18 May 2010 Comments (0)

I like robots and all the things related to them. Robots represent the modern technology and symbolize the future and all the advance stuff. And in the future we will be meeting robots on every corner and someday they will become our friends! That’s probably why I enjoy drawing them.

Denis Kortunov, 30 April 2010 Comments (0)

Not very long ago the delegation of Turbomilkers visited a conference for creative professionals called Creative Future 2010.

We have moved into a new office

Denis Kortunov, 13 April 2010 Comments (1)

Our company has gradually expanded so that we could not all fit into our old office space. So we moved into a new office, which is twice the size of the previous location. Now we are seated on the 18th floor of a high building of glass and concrete in a business center of Samara.

So our address has changed accordingly to: 1806-1807, Scala Hall Business Center, Building 2, 4a Moskovskoye shosse, Samara, 443013

Zoomeyes are back!

Zoomeyes are back!

When a man works on a computer he looks into the monitor and sees various applications. We thought: “What if the applications could look back at the man with their large clear eyes?!” This idea lead to the creation of a free set of goggled Zoomeyes 2 icons meant to replace the default application icons.

In our day-to-day work we use a very handy yet powerful tool Basecamp, the leading web-based project collaboration tool. We use it from the moment of its appearance and it seems like it happened quite recently, but in fact Basecamp is now celebrating its 6th anniversary.

Portfolio Alternative Navigation

Denis Kortunov, 11 January 2010 Comments (0)

We have decided to slightly revise the concept of our site. Now we will be concentrating more on the portfolio, rather than on our blog. This makes sense considering the fact that we deliver services related to graphic design and we need cool clients. Moreover, our portfolio has become large and very attractive.

Mind you it will have longevity and I need to only employ a minute amount at any moment so I guess all things considered when you total how a whole lot and the simplest way often used cheap cologne maybe our Chanel isn't that expensive.It can be funny how a brand identity perfume can make you are a million dollars when compared with a affordable soapy smelling essence.And I actually do believe if you are good and then that contributes to how you are about other individuals. These days you will discover designer perfumes just about anywhere that promote cosmetics together with pharmacies and stores.This is not surprisingly a very important thing for individuals fragrant owners because all of these stores have to keep up with levels of competition allowing us to buy a popular bottle about Chanel or possibly Estee Lauder and / or Calvin Klein et cetera at additional competitive prices.A good idea is to search around and also compare prices so that you can buy. It's also possible to shop online if the following takes your own fancy.Often it will be possible to purchase amazing bargains with this.Obviously you do not have a pleasure with obtaining the product there and then, as you'll need to wait for it to always be shipped back.There is something else entirely you'll need to be aware about when shopping with this which is make sure you are unable to get charged a lot of for transport.Many consumers think actually getting an issue cheap and by time they finance shipping it'll have cost precisely the same or more for any product in comparison with buying the software locally. Buying like this does cause it to hard should you not know much for the perfume that you will be ordering just like you cannot smell a sample beforehand.But once you know what you wish and you also have finished your due diligence regarding prices then do it now.This technique for shopping can be extremely helpful should you not live in close proximity to shops.
