Slack UX design community

Joining a Slack UX design community is a great way of connecting with other designers. It will help you learn the ropes of being a designer by providing feedback and receiving tips and tricks yourself as well. Here’s an introduction to our very own Slack UX design community.

If you either work at a small company or as a lone UX designer in a big company, getting feedback on your work can be difficult. Having a community to fall back on can be of great benefit to you and the clients you work for. This might be applicable even more when you’re starting out to become a UX designer.

Being a part of a Slack UX design community does just that. With designers just like yourself, you can truly get the feedback you need to bring your designs to the next level. The Designer’s Toolbox has a community just like that.

Here’s what we’re all about.

About our Slack UX design community

The Designer’s Toolbox’s Slack UX design community has been created at the beginning of 2021. Since then we’ve helped designers around the world get feedback on their work, learn UX, help them get a job, and so much more. Here’s a list of reasons you might want to join our group.

  • Meet other designers.
  • Give and receive feedback on your work.
  • Share insights, best practices, and design news.
  • Grow together to become next-level designers in 2022.

Another thing we do is monthly design challenges. We share your work on our socials so that you can get some nice exposure within the design world.

“The community is warm and helpful. The tips are great, and I can recommend this site to anybody just starting out in UX Design. Overall, it is the Designer’s Toolbox that I’ll carry for the rest of my career.”

How do you find Slack communities?

Finding communities in Slack can be difficult. There is not a news feed or timeline of all Slack communities available in the way you might see that on other social platforms like Facebook and Twitter.

To find Slack UX design communities, you will need to be lucky to find a platform that just happens to have a Slack community as well. We have such a community and you can always join.

Here are some other ways to find Slack communities.

Do you have alternatives to the Slack UX design community?

Are you looking for something more than just our Slack UX community? There are more ways to learn and grow together with other designers. If you’re looking for something more personal than just being part of a group of designers, we have another option called the UX Career Track.

This option provides you with personal support, career advice, feedback on your portfolio, and more. Check it out below.

UX Career Track

Become job-ready by building a resume, portfolio, and cover letter that converts into job interviews. You’ll be invited to join design reviews, office hours, and events to grow and learn with one goal in mind. To get you that UX job.
