Join our Slack UX design community

Joining a Slack UX design community is an excellent 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.

Getting feedback on your design work can be difficult. It doesn’t matter if you work at a small company or as a lone UX designer in a big company. 

However, having a community to fall back on can greatly benefit you and the clients you work for. This is even more so when you’ve recently started to become a UX designer.

Being a part of a Slack UX design community does just that. With designers like yourself, you can 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

We created the Designer’s Toolbox’s Slack UX design community at the beginning of 2021.

Since then, we’ve helped designers worldwide get feedback on their work, learn UX, help them land their first UX job, and so much more.

Here’s a list of reasons to join our group.

  • Meet other designers. We’re currently with well over 1,000 designers.
  • Give and receive feedback on your work.
  • Share insights, best practices, and design news.
  • Join design hangouts and other events.

Another thing we do within our community is help each other with user research. Are you looking for participants in your questionnaire or usability test? We have a channel for that!

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