Estimate the gender distribution of your followers and those you follow

Estimate the gender distribution of your followers and those you follow

Proporti.onl

Many tech leaders follow mostly men, but I want to follow a diverse group of people. Twitter Analytics doesn't tell me the gender distribution of those I follow, and it doesn't try to identify gender-nonbinary people. So I built this tool for myself and put it on GitHub. It's inaccurate and it undercounts nonbinary folk, but it's better than making no effort at all. I want you to be able to do this, too. Estimate the distribution of those you follow and see if there's room to improve!

Inclusive Design Recruitment

Inclusive Design Recruitment is an initiative by Snook. We have developed this content through several public workshops and with the help of some wonderful collaborators.

From helping people bank more easily to looking after their health, from travelling on holiday to making sure their house always has power. We work with organisations to ensure the services they provide enable people to get things done easily, so they always choose you first and receive the service they need. We’re naturally curious, asking questions to get to the bottom of problems and uncover insights that help us develop great designs. We know it’s not enough to design a great customer journey – we also make sure your people and organisation have the training and skills to deliver it. And our tenacious side? That’s how we get things done. Our people, experience and rock-solid processes make sure your project gets delivered, bang on time. We feel that we have a moral obligation to the work we take on, we ensure the research and designs we produce will be carried forward to have a meaningful impact on society.

Typeface combinations and recommendations

Typeface combinations and recommendations

Typewolf

I launched Typewolf as a side project in June of 2013. Working as a designer, I was always frustrated by the lack of good resources for choosing fonts for design projects. Seeing type samples set in “the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” isn’t very useful when it comes to web design—seeing how real type performs on actual websites is much more helpful. I’ve also noticed that other typography sites tend to be written from a type designer’s perspective rather than from the perspective of someone who actually uses type in their day-to-day work. I’ve been a designer for 17 years, so everything on Typewolf is approached from a designer’s perspective. My goal is to make Typewolf the absolute best resource available for everything related to typography on the web. Typewolf will always remain an independent site that features typefaces from all type foundries regardless of where the fonts can be purchased.

CreativeMornings

In 2008, Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) started CreativeMornings out of a desire for an ongoing, accessible event for New York’s creative community. The concept was simple: breakfast and a short talk one Friday morning a month. Every event would be free of charge and open to anyone.

Today, attendees gather in cities around the world to enjoy fresh coffee, friendly people, and an international array of breakfast foods. Volunteer hosts and their team members organize local chapters that not only celebrate a city’s creative talent, but also promote an open space to connect with like-minded individuals. The growing archive of past breakfast talks is humbling. From design legends to hometown heroes, speakers are selected by each chapter based on a global theme.

CreativeMornings remains free thanks to the support of local partners, generous venues, and longterm global partners. Everyone is welcome. Everyone is creative. Just register beforehand to reserve your spot. And if you need a little help convincing your boss to let you attend, we’ve got you covered. Remember to set your alarm, and we’ll see you in the morning!

Present & Correct

Keeps my Twitter feed fresh with new and timeless graphic design. From time to time they also share wonderful collections of things.

P&C opened its virtual doors in 2009. A place for our own designs, things we love by other designers from around the world & vintage items which we discover on trips and foraging expedition. It's a showcase for the things we have enjoyed since school. A long-term obsession with stationery has culminated in a constantly evolving store. Paper and office objects which are inspired by homework, the post office and school. We are both graphic designers and go on sourcing trips around four times a year with the hope of finding some vintage gems. The hunting is fun and currently we stock stationery from 18+ different countries. We want to spark a distant memory, make you smile or look at the most mundane in a new, and fonder, light.

Design trends revolutionizing the entrepreneurial and corporate ecosystems in tech

Design trends revolutionizing the entrepreneurial and corporate ecosystems in tech

Design in Tech Report by John Maeda

The origin of the report begins years ago when I joined the the venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins as one of Silicon Valley's first design partners and watched as one of my partners Mary Meeker delivered her incredible Internet Trends Report. They address the macro- and socio-economic conditions, the financial markets viewed historically, and show how certain products/services have won in the marketplace. I noticed that Mary would often refer to how the quality of a product/service was the determining factor for successful businesses — but the word “design” wasn’t used explicitly, and instead “experience” or “UI” were what was paving the path to a win. So I saw an opportunity to clarify how designers and design play a role in businesses of all scale and especially in the technology industry; and with a team of curious, younger folks at KP, we set off to build the first design in tech report.

Freunde von Freunden

Beautiful interviews with creatives from around the world. Make sure to watch the interview with Karen & Christian Boros.

We are an international network of individuals from diverse creative and cultural backgrounds, and have had the pleasure to meet and collaborate with like-minded people from all over the world. Our online magazine is the digital representation of a creative community brought together by a collective interest in art, culture, food, design, innovation, and social change. What began as a magazine to share the stories of our friends and the places they live in, developed into a platform that is driven by topics with change and tastemaking angles.

While our foundation is our online platform, we also collaborate with like-minded brands and organizations on creative projects like books, events, and video productions.

My all time favorite blog by my favorite human being I've only met online. If you are new to design, this is a great place to start. Tina publishes a link pack every Friday with the most interesting and inspiring links. Read all about Tina. I basically discovered design-internet through her.
