A directory of Black designers from around the world

Blacks Who Design is a directory of Black designers that aims to “inspire new designers, encourage people to diversify their feeds, and discover amazing individuals to join your team.” While the designers are mainly concentrated in North America (USA + Canada), there are designers from places like the UK, Poland, Nigeria, Kenya, and Germany to name a few. What’s more, it’s not just for Black designers as the site explains:

If you’re not a Black designer, this site’s for you too :)

Reply to a recruiter: Tired of recruiting emails? Instead of hitting archive, reply with a link to this site.

Target your mentoring: Dedicate your lunch breaks towards mentoring people that might not normally get access to you.

Volunteer: Consider blocking off some time to teach design to younger students.

It was also nice to see a few of my friends in there so definitely check it out.
