I've always been an active pinner on Pinterest for these DIY type tutorials, but this is the candy store version of DIY videos. I had some quick feedback on the UI of your website! https://www.opentest.co/share/fb... This is so cool :)

Darby is a video community of DIY makers. We've become accustomed to learning how to do things from YouTube... which is a 1-way broadcasting experience. Darby is live, where DIY makers can take questions, interact, and make things together with their audience. When I was at Meerkat the DIY streams where always fun to see, makers perfect sense for there to be a dedicated app for this (and a huge community around it already...) and the app is really quite gorgeous. The makers @nicolefarb & @elgcreative will be here to answer any questions, ask away 💫

Hello! At Darby Smart we've learned that the maker community needs a space to chat with one another about what inspires them. Using creative videos as the impetus, we've built an app that enables makers of all levels to ask questions, share ideas, and encourage each other. We promise there's a video for everyone on Darby, with new ones added daily. We hope you enjoy!
