How to support Ukrainian businesses?
My story

I am Vlad, the founder of the Candybober design agency, which provides identity, websites, and branding for small and medium-sized businesses. Our team consists of 5 people.

For a long time I worked independently, but due to a lack of time and free hands, I decided to open my own agency about a year ago.

Since the beginning of the war, we have lost 80% of our clients, but we haven’t lost faith in Ukraine’s victory. Having paid salaries to all employees, we have continued to work and now actively need both customers and funding.

 In the first few weeks, we helped in a variety of ways: spreading information about charities through clients, raising money for donations and donating some of our profits, making campaign posters for Russian audiences, and designing for volunteers and volunteer companies.

With funding, we will be able to focus our work only on non-profit projects or help Ukrainian brands conquer new markets around the world for free.
