Who we are. We’re a group of volunteers who want to help junior designers get hired.

Design Collective selects cohorts of aspiring designers and pairs them up with seasoned design mentors in the tech industry.

At the beginning of each cohort, student designers pick out a real-world design problem that excites them. From improving your favorite messaging app to conjuring up the new, must-have feature for XYZ, everybody is encouraged to design for impact. Students will end their cohort experience with a published design case study for their portfolio and a final design showcase in front of design veterans and entrepreneurs.
