Designer Hangout

Happy Monday, and welcome to all of our new members!

Thank you to Marcin Treder, CEO of UXPin, who joined us for a live-stream Q&A this past Wednesday. We talked about UXPin's upcoming redesign, building large, productive teams, and the "entrepreneur-designer." If you missed it, you can watch it here.

Big thanks to Adrienne Hunter, our resident UX and VR expert for a live-stream Q&A a couple of weeks ago. If you missed the session, you can watch it here, and be sure to check out her blog, VRINFLUX, and her VR studio, Tomorrow Today Labs.

Designer Hangout is giving away a one year subscription of UXPin Pro+, and anyone can try it absolutely free. In addition, you can grab for free the UX Design Trends Bundle, 350+ pages of combined advice for web, UX, and mobile design.

Laura Klein, author of UX For Lean Startups is looking for a few people to interview about the best and worst team experiences they’ve had. If you're open to a 20 minute phone call with Laura, DM her in the community or shoot her an email at

I'm putting together some surveys to learn more about what you want. The mods and I have a long list of initiatives, and we want you to choose where we go next--you know, user-centered design. More on that soon!

Have a great week,

I label increasingly nonsensical images with ‘UI’ and ‘UX’ and hope they get used in serious presentations
