about krupa
Krupa is the main design conference of Ukraine. In 2018, we gathered more than 1000 interface designers and received a large amount of positive feedback.

The conference is created by designers for designers — there is no place for random speakers, weak content and inappropriate activities. We have been building an active UI / UX community for 3 years, that’s why we know and feel our audience.

How it was the last time
We invited fantastic speakers from all over the world and the most interesting Ukrainian designers to share the scene of the Sports Palace with Don Norman, the author of the User Experience colocation.
Speakers from Ukraine, the USA, Switzerland, Germany, Japan, and Israel will participate in the conference. Let's join the experience of such different participants in the global UX world
parallel flows
Speeches will be held in two parallel streams, with the exception of the lecture by Don Norman - everyone should hear it
So many designers of interfaces have never been gathered together in Ukraine. Actually, in Eastern Europe too
