Why startups Choose overspace

March 1, 2024

Hey there —

I’m Illia Strikhar, a founder of Overspace and a product designer helping early-stage startups design disruptive products.

Over the years I’ve worked with visionaries all around the world, turning their abstract ideas into unique beautiful products.

I was their partner, rather than a hired gun. I’d reject 50% of my leads just because I didn’t truly believe their products were going to succeed.

Once I’d take on a project I would live it — as if my own money was at stake.

I’d advise each founder on how to simplify their MVP concept to make sure it was solving just one simple problem. I’ve seen far too many examples of people spending tens of thousands of dollars building something no one needs.

Then I’d design a beautiful first version that was ready to find product-market fit and get funded, or acquired.

I never marketed myself — people would find me mostly through word-of-mouth.

They’d choose me because they:

  • didn’t want to be locked into a $15k/mo full-time senior designer
  • didn’t want to risk their company’s sustainability by burning all their cash in 3 months.
  • wanted the freedom to pause/resume our work at any point

Today, I’m getting more requests than I can handle.

Therefore, I’ve launched a new kind of service that allows any innovative startup to work with me and my team.

New service, in a nutshell

  • Same personable partnership approach that I described above
  • Fixed monthly cost, offering more freedom than a traditional quoted contract
  • Unlimited number of revisions
  • Updates every 2-3 business days
  • Pause/cancel any time
  • Highly organized project management

We’ll also be launching an Affordable Design Program (ADP) providing discounts for NGOs, healthcare/biotech companies, as well as companies from Ukraine (that’s where I’m from originally).

If you are interested in this kind of service please explore our pricing and schedule a free 15-min intro call:
