Design Buddies is an inclusive design community where all designers can level up.
I work closely with our whole team to strategize to improve our community. We like to test and learn quickly and at scale.
We have 37,000+ members on Discord and counting. We have channels for design resources, general discussions, asking for help, specific topic discussions, critique, interest clubs, showcase, social media engagement, non-design discussions, and voice channels where Buddies can work/study together, live.
You can join us on Discord here.
We want to help our Buddies land jobs and hire!
We've hosted 100+ events relating to leveling up your design career, interactive workshops, giveaways, game UX, soft skills, portfolio reviews, special topics, working cross-functionally, and Diversity & Inclusion.
We have fun merch designs inspired by art, tech, food, and more from our community. You can visit our shop here.
As part of Camp Figma, I teamed up with Nadia and Marissa from our admin team to build Hop Land – a level design system in Figma. You can make your own Hop Land here!
I designed Fluffle and collaborated with our teams to craft Fluffle's persona.
Fluffle, by English terms means a group of bunnies. As we are a community of designers, Fluffle represents all of us! Fluffle is your friendly guide to help support you in your design adventures.
Fluffle is a bunny with light fur, red & pink eyes, and pink tips on both ears. Everything else may be interpretted by the artist - we’d love to see Fluffle in your own unique art style!
Here are some Fluffles by our graphic design team:
Creative, energetic, adventurous, wholesome, ambivert, class clown, and curious
You can learn more about Fluffle in this carousel I created.
We have a lot of new features coming up centered around helping you level up your design career and connecting with other fellow designers! Some of them include:
