Hey there. I'm Marc, the Founder of MentorOla. MentorOla is a new site for Mentors and Mentees in the UI & UX Design community. Helping to bring the very best Design Mentors & Mentees together in one place. Like I've mentioned in many of my Medium articles, I've always advocated 'time-served' designers giving a little something back, and helping those young guns (or folks navigating a change of career) out with valuable advice and support. I have many things planned for MentorOla moving forward and would love to hear your thoughts and feedback? Big thanks to @chrismessina for the Hunt! UPDATE: I'm also adding badges to the first 50 Profiles on the site! Get yourself an 'Early Adopter' Badge before they're all gone ;)

@mrcndrw Really love the idea of developing mentor/mentees relationships and I think it has a lot of potential... Could you explain a bit further how this works? I mean are the questions asked on your website or do designers find mentors to reach on social media(Twitter,Dribbble,etc.)?

@chrismessina @mrcndrw This is a lovely thought! Knowledge should be passed on and giving back is the noblest thing one can do! Congratulations @mrcndrw ! πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

@anges244 Hi Aggelos. In V.1 i'm looking at keeping conversations on-site via Private Messaging and Notifications. But i'm open to any suggestions for V.2, V.3 and onward... :)

Congrats Marc!! Love the use of unDraw (cc @NinaLimpi @anges244)!! I've been making an npm package for unDraw, so people can use them as React components πŸ‘‰ https://github.com/GraemeFulton/... You already got some great mentors on there, it looks very promising!
