About the App

This app-based community is inspired by a post from Juan Mena that you can check out here. The original concept of a mentoring resource list stems from Stephanie Hurlburt’s article “List of Engineers Willing to Mentor You”

Don't be shy, don't be afraid to reach out to these designers to ask for help any time. Make sure to introduce yourself a bit and explain what you'd like guidance on. They can help with tutoring, pointing you to resources, resume/interview tips, general career advice, or even just a casual conversation about what it's like to work in the industry.

The DesignMentors.org Team

We are a group of long time designers that are passionate about helping grow and educate the design community. While there are any great independent resources scattered about, there is no place dedicated to help educate and inform those looking to entire the design field. It is our goal to make this community-based app a premiere educational resource for designers to network and have a central repository of career opportunities, events and much more.
