Excited is a digital product design agency founded at the end of 2018 by Anelia Zazulina and Oleksandr Perelyotov. They left outsourced technology companies to create a business based on their values by combining their work experience with people and creating a functional design. The team loves their craft, provides quality service, designs digital products from scratch, improves existing ones, designs websites, and develops them on Webflow. From the first year of its existence, the agency began to win world awards such as the Red Dot Award, Awwwards, CSS Design, etc. Currently, Excited is among the TOP-15 UX world leaders and the top five in Ukraine, according to Clutch. The head office is based in Lviv, but part of the team works remotely from Kyiv.
Excited are actively contributing to the victory, a full-scale invasion was met in work on a volunteer project for the “Hospitaliers” medical battalion. They noticed that this medical battalion didn’t have a website and communicated all the needs and details on the Facebook page. So Excited took over the design, development, and payment of hosting the website with not only Ukrainian but English and Polish versions. It made it easier to collect funds from all over the world and helped to have everything in one place: answers to FAQs, details, lists of needs, reporting, and a form where you can offer help.
In the first days after the invasion, Excited converted their office into a shelter and thus gave home to women and children fleeing the war. In addition, the founders Anelia and Oleksandr donated about one and a half million hryvnias to help the Armed Forces. Part of this amount was donated to charity funds such as Save life, Hospitallers, and Ukroboronprom. The rest of the amount where the purchase of such necessities for the military as vacuum wound therapy devices, sights, a thermal imaging drone, a night vision device, weather stations for adjusting fire, an anti-shock tablet, etc. They also recently opened the Garrison Lviv charity fund, with the help of which they will continue their volunteer activities in the future.
