Started 4 years, we continue to bring designers across geographies together for conversations, connections, and learning.
We’d love to have you onboard ????

So, before we get started, we have some simple community guidelines that we ask everyone to respect in order to make our community a welcoming place where people can share ideas and information freely.
Give more than you take. Members who contribute regularly make our community a wonderful place. We recommend trying to contribute before requesting assistance. We’re not saying don’t ask for help, but do your best to be helpful as well in return, whenever you can, even if it just means providing your opinion on something. Is this something you're cool with ?
No sales pitches. We welcome members who build tools or offer services in the People vertical, but please refrain from hard sells or self promotion of products and services you offer. Focus on thought leadership and be respectful when someone politely declines your services or products. Reaching out to someone to pitch your services should only occur if someone has requested it specifically. If you do have an urge, please do reach out to Martin Hauck ahead of time to get approval of the message or promotion. The group is sponsor funded so if you see value in communicating messages regarding products or services you're connected to, you will likely be asked to become a sponsor of the group. Do you value this philosophy and will you ensure that you adhere to this?
We are a self governing community. Every member has the duty to create a harmonious community and ensure that members abide by the Community Guidelines. We value different perspectives and healthy discourse, but do not tolerate bullying or hateful speech. will you ensure that The People People Group remains a welcoming and resourceful place for people to turn to?
Act professionally. We are stronger when we can leverage the learnings of our members, but we must also be sensitive about the information that is shared with us in confidence and act as professionals accordingly. Given the nature of our work, people often confide in us whether as a candidate, an employee or within the community. Sharing anything of confidential nature without without explicit permission from the individual involved will result in removal from the group. If you wouldn't advertise it on a billboard, it shouldn't be shared in the group. Will you act and encourage others to act as a respectful professional at all times?
If you feel a member has violated the community guidelines, please notify Martin Hauck. Your concern will not be shared with the member in question. Membership to The People People Group is a privilege that can be revoked at any time and decisions are at the sole discretion of the admin team.
Nice! How would you best describe your role at ?

This question is required. * This is where we'll send your Slack group invite to. PS It's best to use your personal so you don't have to re-apply if you change jobs. 😉
Oh and a few more things....

In addition to learning a ton, I got my current job thanks to DesignX. By interacting in the community, I was able to make some key contacts, get known, and build some relationships that helped me get my foot in the door and ultimately, the job. A design networking must.
Vasilis Baimas
Having a community to rely upon means that you’re surrounded by people who know exactly what it is you’re going through. DesignX community helped me to share my knowledge, to make me think about what I do and how I do it from another person’s viewpoint. It helps to establish me as an expert in my field.
Joanna Ambrosio
Being part of the DesignX community has helped me broaden my perspective and made me a better designer because of it. I appreciate the sense of unity and togetherness, which we all need at some point. I can’t thank the DesignX organizers enough, thank you for connecting us in this wonderful community.
Vicky Liu
Being in DesignX gave me direct access to resources and insights related to UX/UI and user centred design practices that helps me grow as a UX designer & researcher. I rely on the ongoing discussions, feedback and events to stay up-to-date with what’s happening in the field. I’m grateful for having this online community in the midst of a pandemic that supports my career growth.

DesignX acted as a catalyst to find new friends and opportunities in a completely new city with amazing events like ‘pantones and patios’ and ‘design leadership conference’. Without it, I wouldn’t even have scratched the surface of the Toronto design industry. And now that they’ve gone digital-first I am meeting and interacting with great minds all around the world.
Leandro Fernandez
Joining DesignX helped me break into the product design industry! I found both my first internship and junior role through DesignX. The support and opportunities I’ve gained from this community are unmatched.
