Design and shit

Written on in Design & dev

For a long time we’ve used Twitter as a platform for discussion, but 140 characters can really stifle (and spam) a conversation in a way that it wasn’t designed to be used.

Slack changed the way we communicate at Fueled; and I’ve recently joined a few localised Slack teams, and it got me thinking. So I put the idea to Twitter and we came up with (after some pretty terrible and amazing name ideas) Design and shit.

It’s open to anyone – designers, developers, illustrators, none of the above – so get in touch if you want to join in discussions about:

  • #designandshit;
  • #devandshit;
  • #musicandshit;
  • #sportsandshit;
  • and basically anything else you want to chat about (and shit).

Eventually I’ll set up some kind of automated invite service, but until then, this’ll have to do.

We only have one rule at the moment, and that’s ‘Don’t be a dick’. If you’re a dick then you’ll quickly find yourself dumped on your arse outside the Slack team. Boom!
