A call to designers asking if you need help to support design in your business environment. We offer free design coffees to help sell design to your organisation and support your design efforts. Organise a design coffee session for your team, put us in touch, email us at design@dna.co.za

a design revolution

Together we can influence an entire generation of creative people because together we can make impactful change.

 

It's time we start a design revolution!

 

There are a lot of great influencers out there that can show us what is great about design.  This Design Community has been created to push design even further.  To draw on what has been done before and move us to the next level of great design.  It is so important to us that design is great again for both ourselves as designers, and for our audiences.  We want to walk down the street, use an app, use a microwave and experience great design again.  
 
That’s what it’s about.
It’s about wanting to take the next step, wanting to move on, wanting to inspire great design.
Whatever it takes.  We don’t know what it’ll take! We’d like to just do it and find out!!

a design community.

Above all else, we are a community.

 

DDC connects designers with the best jobs and opportunities in design.

We connect companies with the best designers.

Join our community or post to our job listing.

Inspiration doesn’t come from a textbook but from other designers and the designs you see in the community in which you live.

 

Surrounding yourself with a community that truly understands and appreciates design can be the key to thriving as a designer.

 

This is a community for anyone interested in service design, user experience design and all other forms of design. We started this community to share knowledge, to have conversations with fellow designers, employers or whomever wants to talk, share and learn all things design.

A like-minded, open-minded, thought-leading, and innovative community.

This is the place to do work and share it with others.

A place to *steal and improve.
Generously share ideas and knowledge.

Take advantage of the community.  Contribute.

  A place where you become known.

 

*I steal from people who are smarter than me.  I learn from them.  I improve and then share with everyone.  I give back.

Most people don't know why they're doing what they're doing.  They imitate others, go with the flow and follow paths without even making their own.  They spend decades in pursuit of something that someone else convinced them they should want without realising it's not what will make them happy.  Don't have regrets one day having wasted your one chance in life because you pursued little everyday distractions instead of big dreams.  You need to know what makes you happy.  You need to know what's worth doing.

DDC is our philosophy of a life spent creating and inspiring.  DDC is not about money.  DDC is about making dreams come true for others and for ourselves.  Making DDC is a great way to improve the world while improving ourselves.  DDC is a utopia.  It is a place where we design our perfect world.  We never do anything just for the money.   We don't pursue anything here just for our own gain.  We only answer the calls for help.  Our success will come from persistently improving and inventing, not from promoting what's not working.  

We just started helping designers.  You can't please everyone so we proudly exclude people.

The real point of doing DDC is to be happy.  So here we do only what makes us happy.
For all of this to make sense, you have to participate in out DDC tale!

We live for sharing ideas on design, business and work culture with the world.
