If you can even believe it, “@allthedesigners” was not claimed on Twitter.
Well not anymore, folks.
I am on a mission to meet inspiring designers and become a stronger member of the UX community.
Humans of New York is a blog that deeply inspires me. Brandon — the photo-genius behind HONY — got laid off, moved to New York, and decided he was going to photograph 10,000 New Yorkers. Brandon’s sense of community is beautiful and brings a perspective that I want to provide for UX designers everywhere.
Just weeks in and the design-centered conversations have been off the charts, inspiring, and helpful…
@RyanFoxSquire at Lumos Labs shared his thoughts on self development and ways to incorporate growth and learning into one’s career.
@KatVellos at Viv Labs reminded me to go to non-UX meetups, since there is typically a lack of designers present.
@Strobeflier at inMarkit talked with me about finding one’s passion and not wasting time on projects that are not aligned with your values.
@LissaDoty talked with me about glass-blowing, design-thinking, and collaboration in her career.
@BenSykes spoke with a group of us, and his message was clear — “Challenge yourself to design everyday. Sketch all the time.”
Stay tuned for more interviews!
I can’t build the #AllTheDesigners community alone. Do you love design and/or coffee? Or know someone that does? Let’s connect! cehopkins [at] gmail [dot] com or @allthedesigners on Twitter.
A huge thanks to my friends for helping me launch this new passion project. Thanks for being a part of my UX journey!
