Single designers in teams, how do you get design mentorship or coaching?

    From my point of view and past experience while you can't get a direct designer to designer mentorship you can get other kinds of mentorships. In special from PM's and Engineer leads. In the end, it contributes a lot to your growth as a designer but also to open your eyes to other things like growth, team management, and engineering in general.

    But off course that if you get into a point where u feel that you're not learning or in need to be more w designers you should either convince the company to bring another designer to the team or find another job that fits your current needs.

      Totally agree here. My first design role was as an intern in a start-up. I was the only designer surrounded by devs. That was crucial to my growth in learning to Frontend code and I'm certainly benefiting from it today! Most design roles I see all require some form of coding. With that being said I had to really push myself to improve as a designer during those months. It was tough. I agree also to perhaps talk to through with your company or just move on.
