How to support Ukrainian businesses?
My story


I own a small graphic design studio named

With this startup I meant to assist small and micro businesses in Ukraine, so I focused on their needs: logo, printing services, outdoor advertising, but did not work with big scale projects, interface or video production. That didn’t turn out well for me, because in the days of all out war my business  happened to be  in no demand. Who needs a logo while the missiles are flying over you? Volunteering in the field of art helped me to find emotional stability during the first days of the invasion. I designed illustrations for NFT collections, posters and cards to express gratitude to those who are protecting us or simply doing their jobs, and some clothing mockups.  Now, I am in great need of financial support.

It’s natural for  an entrepreneur to look for additional sources of income. I’ve made up my mind to make gifts and  souvenirs representing Ukraine.  As a result, I tested the idea of Letters from St Nicholas last year which proved to be in demand and also  showed a demand  for interesting customized  gifts. So, I was planning to launch new products, particularly, a set of printed souvenirs to commemorate the anniversary of Ivan Mazepa, a range of ballpoint pens created by 3D from the beginning of XX century samples, specially designed individual planners with personalized pages.

For the time being, all plans have been halted, almost no orders in my primary business. Part of the income is willingly given  to the armed forces, not much left to reinvest in business. If I had a chance for financial support, I would launch a small batch production and offer employment to Ukrainians who lost their homes and earnings due to the war. New products will bear the memory of goodwill people who supported my project.
