I love designer news, seriously. Sometimes, I visit here more than facebook or twitter. It's such a great community and I'm very hopeful about it, it will grow up more.
However, it was growing slowly. There are many designers out there not even heard of designer news. I had a dozen of interviews for a job in the previous weeks and I was very surprised that none of them heard about this site. I think Designer News should gain momentum but I also understand why Allan and Kelly chose the way to grow it gradually: not to lose control of the community and they did it perfectly.
I hope and expect Andrew to make it better, stronger and reputable.
Wow, can't wait to see how Metalab spices up DN. It's a great site, but feel like there's a lot that can be improved upon.
Congrats Andrew! Glad the site is in good hands.
This is one of the few discussion boards where I'll sit and read paragraphs upon paragraphs of comments, and it's a nice alternative to those more frugal forms of communication. Let's hope the quality lives on.
Awesome. This is great news!
I’m working with a handful of great companies that make products specifically for designers on some simple, understated sponsorships
didn't DN already try that?
They did but LV blew up before they could get it self-sustainable. Even then, venture backed startup so it was irrelevant.
