about.

We bring people who should know one another together so they can share meaningful conversations and build the foundation for a strong business relationship.

We don't ask for favours. We offering mutual value so everybody wins in the long run.

Graphic Design, Service Design, User Interface Design, UX, you name it, we know it - well.

We were designers ourselves.  We still are.

We put our skills to use and have designed a new way to connect businesses with designers. 

 

We don't call it recruitment. We call it connecting. 

We connect people and businesses with one goal: to create a meaningful experience for them BOTH. It's the TEAM experience we are designing.

No robots or AI or machine learning here - this is about people.

 

We specialise in connecting designers and businesses in a partnership.  A mutually beneficial partnership.  

That means a relationship where the business is more successful because of it, and the designer is fulfilled in contributing and sharing in this success. 

We know what each of their connections are capable of, we know who is in our community, and what connections need or are looking for.  This enables us to instantaneously connect people based on needs and abilities, while increasing value for candidates and employers.

We're in constant contact with our community, so that each member stays fresh on in our minds.

We get everyone involved.  This is what makes us transparent and in control of our community - to the benefit of each person.

 

We connect correctly.

our story.

Why DDC?

We don't want it to be crazy at work.  We don't want life to be the scraps, the doggy bag, of life.  It's time to ditch that ego.  It's time to rework work.

 

It's time to connect right.

Trust

The human being cannot be replicated. The human being is more important than technology. At DNA Design Connectors we talk about things like trust when we look for people to join our team. We look at trust, not just performance as reasons to judge whether we should let someone on our team.

In business they only want to see what your performance was and where else you worked before. They never consider trust.

Performance = how good are you at your job.
Trust = your character.

We’d rather have a medium performer with high trust on our team.

Treating people right.

Treating people right is fundamental to how we do business. We treat our employees, clients and vendors as we would want to be treated, we treat each other like family, and we treat ourselves to a good day’s work and a good night’s sleep.
 

 

find fulfilment in your work.

For candidates.

We connect you with a business opportunity.

This is no random placement matching your hard skills and a technical job spec. No. Connecting means understanding what kind of opportunity fulfils your design soul. Sure you can do many design related jobs, but only a handful will have the ability to truly satisfy you as a designer, with your unique talents - creativity does not foster cloning!  As designers we embrace what makes things unique, our own signature, and we want to know yours and match it to the opportunity that was made for you.

How do we get this right?

 

We connect

We need to know all about what fulfils YOU as a designer.  We can read your CV and view your portfolio but there is so much more if we want to truly find you a fulfilling job.

For employers.

We connect your business with people.

This is no random designer selection, you know where all looks perfect in black and white? No.  Good placement is dependent on a real connection between person and business. Sure many designers can solve your business problem.  But there are very few that will feel fulfilled solving your particular business type of problems. We find that one, that special one suited to you.

And when we do, the job just gets done, well, with no employee stress.

How do we get this right?

 

We connect

We need to know all about your business needs and the problem you expect a designer to help address/solve.  We can read the job spec, but we don't offer an aimless search through candidates CVs, it's more personal than that.  There is so much more if we want to truly find you a designer fitted specifically to your business and role.
