Julia Lybenska's Talk

Designing in Crisis Times

February 28 – 8:50 AM

We all talk about crisis design, but very few of us actually go through a 'real' crisis. Unfortunately, the people of Ukraine do.
In this talk, find out how Ukraine based company Setapp by MacPaw managed to work through blackouts, staff shortages and more — through reorganising workflows and adapting policies. Although obviously we hope no one gets to experience what Ukraine is going through, these lessons learnt can be applicable in many (smaller) crisis situations too.
