"Designer Hangout is my first source of information about UX design. I was unhappy in my last job at an advertising agency, found a new job through Designer Hangout, and now I’m really happy! Designer Hangout isn’t about “networking,” it’s about community."

"If you want a place to ask questions, get inspiration, and have access to one of the biggest, most active design communities out there, Designer Hangout is for you. Whether you're starting out or seasoned, you'll find people, topics, and conversations that help you find answers, get new ideas, and connect with others like you."
Donna Lichaw
"If you're looking for a high quality, spam free community, Designer Hangout is the place to be. A wide range of UX related topics, and tons of resources shared daily, makes Designer Hangout a unique place. It's somewhere where you can share your ideas, chat, laugh and even cry with fellow designers - and learn something new every day of course. We are pretty sure that every new member thinks the same: "I wish I had found this community earlier".
