Results exceeded all expectations. The whole year Ironov developed logos for real customers (among them there were famous bloggers, cafe, bars, applications and products of mass consumption). Nikolay's image is also synthesized. It was created by a neuronet on the basis of photos of all staff of studio, says Studio of Lebedev.

The company claims that Ironov's creativity is used on "signs of institutions in the different cities of Russia, many thousands circulations of corporate products and infinite number of rollers on YouTube".
