    Pros: 

    SUPER LIKE! Bringing diversity and visibility to our world!

    Cons: 

    How can I join?

    Perhaps adding a "JOIN" button right away would help designers interested in joining?

Hola, amigxs! Really happy to launch Latinxs Who Design on Product Hunt. This is a living directory of thriving Latinxs in the design industry. Our mission is to provide a space to find outstanding people to follow, look for a mentor, make new friends, or discover talented latinxs to join your team. If you want to nominate a latinx, please use the “nominate” button. Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions 😉
@pablostanley The layout is so beautiful and simple, like how I can filter by specialism. Nice work 👏🏽
@abadesi Thank you, Abadesi. That's so kind of you.
@pablostanley ahhh como me alegra ver esto por aca! Great job!!! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
This is really cool, Pablo! Like all your other work, it is simple but with a highly efficient payload. I am thinking to build something similar for Africans in design so thanks for the inspiration! 😄
@raybesiga Hey, Ray! That's dope!!! I used @webflowapp to create this. I made the project “clonable” so other people can create their own list. In case you wanted to use it as a starting point, here it is: https://webflow.com/website/Lati...
I see a few friends on this list! (@grlalx @maycupcake) How are you planning to keep this updated and do you add everyone nominated, @pablostanley?
@grlalx @maycupcake @rrhoover Two more people are helping maintaining the profiles—they've been superheroes. For now we're accepting all latinx designers. We have been discussing about setting some filters, but haven't really settled on something. Do you have a suggestion?
@pablostanley that's a tough one! You want to be inclusive and welcoming, if hundreds of people reach out every week, it'll be challenging to manage and potentially lose some of its value. One approach is to have very clear, transparent guidelines that align with your purpose for being added. Maybe everyone needs to have worked on a product that's shipped. 🤔
@rrhoover that’s a great suggestion. I’ll refer to the team and the group. Thank you so much for the thoughtful response.
Where's the dark-skinned latinos at?
@greg_x_willis You can add people using the “nominate” button! 😉
