    We are looking into it, and we can't promise anything... yet.

  • Posted to Single designers in teams, how do you get design mentorship or coaching?, Mar 20, 2017

    I always wondered the same, and after a few years of trial and error I came up with a list that kinda makes sense:

    Local/Online communities This one is the easiest route and the one that opens doors nearly anywhere in the world.

    Communities that meet IRL and have events are in most cases very friendly and looking for new attendants. Check out Meetup

    Online communities such as Designer News can always keep you entertained, and give you a chance to showcase stuff.

    Other communities that I have found friendly, open and always entertaining live in Slack: Design Inc., Spec, NomadList

    School/University Reach out to your favorite professor/s. I maintain contact with a few that I reach out from time to time to discuss more high-level stuff than "just design."

    Your company If you are working for a startup, it's very likely that the founders and yourself have access to a network of VC firms, and even know someone in their network that can introduce you.

    I have been lucky to work for a company with access to FirstMark Capital, which is always organizing events and meetups to assist people in their portfolio to share experiences and knowledge.

    Finding a mentor can be difficult, but is possible if you reach out to people.

  • Posted to Recommendation for keyboard and mouse, Jan 03, 2017

    My combo:

    Keyboard: CM Storm - Quickfire Rapid-I

    Mouse: Razer DeathAdder Chroma

    I love it so much that I have the same setup pretty much everywhere I go (Home, Office, Backpack if traveling)

  • Posted to Ask DN: I need a new mouse. What would you recommend?, Jun 16, 2016

    The Logitech MX Master is a solid option. A bit too big in size for my taste, and with slow tracking (I like insane levels of tracking speed)

    I currently use the Razer's Deathadder Chroma. In fact, I have three between home, office, and on-the-go backpack.

    Razer's software is a joke compared to Logitech's, but hardware-wise this option is perfect. Not only has a fair size, but it also offers the perfect number of customizable buttons on the side (2)

    I play Starcraft (high APM) and LoL (fast/high precision) so I might be biased a bit :P

  • Posted to Ask DN: What mouse do you use?, in reply to Gavin Anthony , Apr 14, 2016

    I switched to this one for a bit (6 months or so)

    It's nice and offers excellent performance, but had to move to another (Razer DeathAdder) after I killed the left click (Starcraft player)

    I have this one on both office and home setups.

    Razer's Synapse (mouse configuration software) is a joke, but I love the hardware.

  • Posted to Division – A new kind of modern design tool is in the making. Join the test group., in reply to Ian Goode , Feb 08, 2016

    Fair yet, a detail that is worth highlighting is the one-liner:

    Research for the modern design tool has begun.

    The word research by itself makes me optimistic because it means Division is not only looking for validation but also giving its target audience to evolve the idea from the get-go.
