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 ! 😀😀

This is nothing short of amazing! I'm an experienced graphic designer trying to get my feet wet in UX/UI design and this is such an incredible resource. Kudos to you all for continuing to foster the ever-helpful trend of the design community and bringing us together in one space!
