Discuss

We want to make sure every person in our platform community has a safe place to receive feedback from the group and provide a way to poll or survey for data collection. We will also hold live AMA sessions with industry experts to answer career or craft related questions.

Careers

We want to provide a free place to post open design positions and one-time projects in your organization. Often times it can be cost prohibitive for small (or even large) design teams to post opportunities in many locations. We want to ensure every single design team has the opportunity to share new opportunities.
