DNA Design Community Terms & Conditions


DNA Design Community provides design support through knowledge (design coffees, Q&A sessions, online discussion board), coaching (on-the-job training, ask the experts meetings) and hands on (designer work) using a subscription service model. 

Supporting designers and business through the sharing of skills, knowledge and experiences within and amongst the design community and engaging in the process of giving and receiving feedback with fellow designers is core to the learning process.

 

As such, all businesses and designers must abide by our Terms of Service (TOS) to keep the way we work honest, transparent and conducive to making design great again, together:
 

  1. Use your best judgment.

  2. Be kind.

  3. No deals with DDC designers outside the DDC relationship.

  4. Respect the 5 assigned designers per subscription rule.

  5. Don’t share anything confidential to business or DDC without permission, and, at the same time, please respect confidences. Don’t share anything confidential or specifically another parties Intellectual Property outside of the DDC relationship without asking the person or business you’re quoting first.

  6. Honour commitment to designer, business and DDC time and remit of subscription service.

We’ll do our best to reach out to people who are out of sync with our TOS, but we reserve the right to suspend or remove anyone from this community without notice.
 

When in doubt, consider rule 2.
 

Thank you.
