I’m so excited to launch The Designership onto Product Hunt. My name’s Michael and I’m a full-time freelance Product (UX/UI) designer. I’ve worked closely with high growth startups to global digital corporations. From Y Combinator backed ( and to corporations such as Adobe. Last year I left my full-time role as a Lead designer at a well funded startup in Australia to freelance full time. 6 months in I finally decided to grow the team to 3 (including myself) and we’re now building in-house products alongside some client work. One of the ventures we’re working is building The Designership community. A passion project of mine. Why The Designership? As a freelancer and part time digital nomad, I’ve always struggled with finding a trusted and active community of like minded and passionate creatives. Yes, there’s Dribbble, Behance etc but those are purely focused on design feedback/showcase. There were a couple of Slack channels but they seemed quite flat. Since I’ve already built a decent following of designers through my social media, Twitter, Newsletter, Youtube, Dribbble etc I decided to give it a shot, and start my very own community and see how far I can take it. 3 weeks in and we’re over 1,500+ members, 50,000+ messages and we’re growing every day. I have a lot planned for the future of The Designership. We’re working hard on rolling out some new sections to the website which will hopefully bring a ton of value to designers and founders from all around the world. I hope to see you over at The Designership! I’m online most of the time, so if you’ve got any questions don’t hesitate to ask :) I’m really looking forward to your feedback.
Happy to be a part of the community. I've been enjoying Michael's newsletter for a long time now and I've learned so many things from his knowledge. And now, he gathers everyone to help each other. Guess what? It works :)
@nseckinoral Hey Nejat, thank you so much and I really appreciate the kind words. You've been following since the beginning, it's great to see. I can't wait to show you guys what we have install for you all.
Excellent community of designers helping designers
I can still remember the first few days of Designership, and I am still amazed at how much it has grown in the short amount of time it has been up. The community is now 1,500+ strong and growing. I have never been apart of something like this, and the value adds that this community brings to designers, developers and entrepreneurs are incredible. I have never seen so many like minded people in a single space and the support you will get from everyone is nothing less than heartwarming as everyone is willing to share and learn. It has just been amazing from the get go, and it is only going to get better. If you are looking to showcase or get excellent feedback on your work or ideas, share, learn and get inspired by design and all it encompasses then Designership is for you. Don't hesitate, join in the conversation and be part of something great.
It's hard to put into words just how good the Designership is and has been for me! It's the kind of place I've been looking for, for years. It's honestly the best community of like minded designers, developers and founders I've ever been a part of. Its a great place for designers of all experience levels, there really is something for everyone. If you're looking for feedback on designs, advice on freelancing, opinions career options, or just a great network of people, this is the place too be! We've got a lot of great people contributing to discussions and theres a lot of awesome things in store for this community. Come join the conversation!
