I follow and believe in

“For me, design is about problem solving, communicating an objective, and helping people.

Flexibility is a superpower
Do your best or don’t start
Good communication leads to success

Space Needle

Karen Olson, Chief Marketing Officer

Olha and her team began work on the updated Space Needle mobile app with rigorous testing of various design paradigms and interviews with actual Space Needle visitors on-site. The greatly improved app experience resulted in a 20% increase in app usage within the first month alone. We are immensely impressed with Olha’s work and contributions to this project and look forward to a continued and long-lasting collaboration.

WE Challenge

Ievgeniia Bespalova, Co-Founder

Based on Olha’s reputation and her own award-winning work at various distinguished companies she was asked to serve as a DEV Challenge jury panel member in the Design category for the 2020 and 2021 editions of our competition. Olha is herself a former winner at this competition.

Olha was invited to judge at DEV Challenge and to serve as a mentor at the IBA Regional Hackathon due to her undeniable expertise in the field, her years of experience, and her extraordinary achievements as one of Ukraine’s absolute top UX/UI and product designers.

Life House

Rami Zeidan Founder & CEO

Olha’s contributions have been very helpful to our efforts. Her design work contributed to the Company creating great products and solutions for our niche industry and helping us secure tens of millions of dollars in funding from notable investors.

I am of the opinion that Ms. Uzhykova is a designer and design director of exceptional ability. I believe she is one of the top design professionals in the field, especially in the travel and hospitality industry.

Crisis Cleanup

Aaron Titus, Executive Director

Olha Uzhykova is a true professional who takes time to dive deep and listen carefully to my requirements, use cases, and guiding principles. She then comes up with innovative, creative solutions that are much better than anything I had considered. Working with Olha is more than a pleasure. Her role in our team is essential, and her vision for our brand, UI, and UX is core to our users' interactions with us every day.

ToughBuilt

Edwin Moossaian

Olga is one of the smartest designers I have ever worked with. One of her outstanding skills as a designer is that she is a great listener. She will take client requirements and expertly solve complex problems. She can take her vast design experience and combine it with technology to come up with fantastic designs on point, and on time. Her many award winning designs speak for her talent and process.

Netrix

Oleg Martynenko

Beyond her extraordinary talent and ability as a designer and design director, Olha has played a pivotal role in cementing Netrix Digital’s corporate and creative culture. She has led and implemented a design philosophy that is centered on taking the time to understand our clients’ goals and adopt them as our own, working closely with them to ensure our high-performance design workflows accomplish everything that our clients are aiming for – and more. The success of the projects led Olha is also a result of her ability to guide the design work to achieve measurable and actual business goals for our clients.

Stanislav Rapp

Product Design Manager, Chan Zuckerberg Initiative

Given my professional experience in product design, as well as my experience leading teams of product designers at major companies, I attest that Olha is a professional of extraordinary ability, and has made significant contributions to the field of product and UI/UX design with her innovative and user-centric approach. She is in the top echelon of product designers in the world, easily among the top 5%.

Mario Kroes

Olga was lovely to work with. She is incredibly creative and logical in her approach which made our UI/UX process very fun to work though. Communication was a breeze as well — I can’t recommend her enough.
