#pairdesign

Join this group to find other designers to pair with and trade skills.

What's Pair Design?

It may not be the kind of collaboration you're thinking of... so let's explain. Read more 

Ever sat next to another designer and worked together on a single artifact? That's #pairdesign.

Huh, I still don't understand, isn't that just a design critique?

Almost. Think of pairing as increasing critical thinking, feedback loops  and building trust with a design partner.

I'm in, but who is this for and why?

Let's share and grow into an active & open community to help shape the method.

Are you a fit?

  • You are a team designer. You're lucky and work on a team of designers.

  • You're a solo designer and you need more than design feedback.

  • You're a junior or senior designer looking to learn from someone less/more experienced.

  • You’re a product owner that would like to communicate ideas outside of standard product requirements.

  • You're a developer, researcher or other practitioner that wants to learn design via pairing.

Here's the group's goals for 2014, so far:

  1. We'll connect you with designers that want to pair.

  2. We'll start a meet up in San Francisco + grow the community here... in SF & NYC this year too :)

  3. This is a draft plan, come back here as we evolve.

Let’s do this!

Thanks,

- Karl

I want to run #pairdesign movement in Brno and further area. The purpose of the project is to explain, spread and share experience of the #pairdesign among designers in Brno – CZ and further area. Setting up regular talkshops with in my garden will be first step. Everyone is welcome. Spending hours working alone without any feedback or mental support could be contra productive. So why we don't try to pair. Let's share our project to help each other and create designs of better quality…

I want to make a new set of method cards that will be used while you work on product design with a design partner. The deck will help designers pair on UX, Product and Visual Design tasks while working on an actual design artifact with other designers and/or developers. (these are meant to be the start of designer coaching tools, think luxr box for designers) See http://www.pairdesign.co/ for more explanation on what Pair Design is to me and can be in the future. With PairDesignCo I want to help…
