What are Design communities?
Designer communities are online hangouts where designers of all types get together. Design is about more than just the final product. It's also about the process of creation, and the people involved. Designers are a unique breed with a distinctive set of skills that can be applied to every industry. But sometimes it's hard to find other designers who share your interests or have similar skill sets... This list contains online communities for graphic designers, UX designers, and UI designers alike. Here you will find plenty of resources on design techniques, inspiration from others in our community, and opportunities to meet new peers for collaboration - all without ever leaving your browser window!
