    That is something we are constantly thinking about at We are building a non-profit that is dedicated to providing tools and resources that enable designers (right now mentors and job postings). We don't move as fast as bigger design communities, but we are free and focused on individual empowerment not monetization.

    Ya... that was really lousy.... I apologize for that, for future launches we'll send you to a landing page with more information and screenshots of the app. Long term we do want to explore surfacing some parts of the system so you don't have to signup

    Hey all! The design community has a few great places to look for career opportunities, but they are getting pretty expensive. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and we just released a career listing board to our platform to make sure every design team has the opportunity to post career opportunities around the world, no matter their size or budget.

    We are still in the early stages of launching our platform, but we are building a design education community dedicated to helping educate and empower designers around the world!

    Been having a lot of conversations with design leaders around career ladders. Everyone seems to want/need one. Few have them documented. Many are in the process of creating one. I’ve put together a short 2-3 minute survey to get some insights on the current state and would love this communities participation.

    Also, check out, we are building a design career education platform to inspire and empower designers around the world!

    I'm curious to learn more about your inspiration for uijar. On Dribbble I can like and bucket things by group/categories of my choice, what use cases would I want to use uijar vs. the native functionality of dribbble?
