Spotlight Artist: Olga Baranova, CBA & Olga Samoilova, CBA

“Thanks to our Precision Air and Air Force 4 Inflators, our work is easier, faster and ultimately has made are business more successful! “

In 2008, the love for creating balloon decor inspired Olga Baranova and Olga Samoilova to leave their current careers (Olga B., a professional designer and Olga S., an engineer chemist) and open their own balloon decorating business, Studio of Balloons “Sunny Wind” in Samara, Russia.

Since then both woman have invested heavily into studying and implementing marketing efforts to build their business. In September of 2011, they passed their Certified Balloon Artists exams and officially became CBAs. They are proud of this recognition and live by the Principles & Elements of Design in all their decor work. “We enjoy creating original decor and try to give individuality to each design we create.” said Olga Baranova. “We are dedicated making our customer’s event a memorable occasion!”

In 2010, they took their creativity abroad and began competing in balloon design competitions with teams throughout Russia. Olga Baranova now leads a team of Russian balloon professionals in design competitions at some of the largest balloon conventions around the world.

At the 2014 World Balloon Convention, they won first place in the Large Sculpture competition, a crowning achievement for balloon professionals in the industry.
